I’ve never met Ernest, however his son Ernie is such a quality personable Man I’m sure a direct reflection of his dad Ernie is my supervisor at work as well as what I would call a good friend! I’m so sorry to hear of your dad‘s passing. I love how you used to come to me the day after I will give you a big bag of cheese from Papa‘s Pizza and you would tell me” You just made an old man very happy“ As you would tell me how when you got home and dangle that bag of cheese in front of him he would have a big smile on his face and grab a piece right away to munch on! So even though I’ve never met your father I would say we had a very cheesy relationship! You’re a dear friend Ernie again my deepest condolences Teddy Olenski
