To Ernie Blair's family,
At Delta, Ernie was always a friendly man who would come upstairs to talk with us at the gate after flight departures and he was always helpful and encouraging. What a good guy and I'm sure there will be many loving memories for your family to share.

Evelyn, Patty, and Jack,
David and I are sad to hear about Ernie. We have such great memories of our visit in April. Ernie certainly loved life and loved his family. He left us with some great stories that make me laugh to think of them. What a wonderful man.

May the Lord give you His peace and comfort. I remember Mr. Blair very well during the time I lived in BVL. Always had a smile for everyone he met. Always a kind word. God bless all of you.
