May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Ernie was a spry little fella with a big smile. Knew him before working with him at Queens/Shorewood through family that were neighbors. God bless you Ernie and give Barbara a big hug.. RIH!!

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. We worked at Queens / Shorewood Packaging together . He was always the most pleasant person you could ask for. He was a great coworker and a kind hearted person! Loved his laugh and sense of humor. Ernie will be missed by all who knew him.
