I have been knowing Ernest for 65 years. We have been friends for all this time. He worked
at Walmart on Highway 14, less than 2 years ago. He became sick and was placed in a nursing facility. Rest in peace dear friend.

I remember Earnest from before we went to Elementary school. His grandparents belonged Evergreen  Baptist Church and he went to our Kindergarten and Vacation Bible Schoool.   He will be missed.
