I just want to say how truly sorry I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I've been thinking a lot these past few days and my very best memories go all the way back to when I was between 12 and 13 when the Sherfeys became apart of our lives. We were blessed to have every single one of them added to our family. I remember at Moms and Pops wedding I was the maid of honor and Ernie was the best man. From that moment he tried to take me in and make feel feel part of the older kids groups. He and Mike would let me tag along to things the youth group at church would do. He played my first game of pool with me at a youth group party and I had my first taste of Chinese food at another church downtown JC we went to. I'll always remember how finally started feeling apart of normal kids lives. Then the most important of all it was Ernie who really introduced me to rock n roll. KISS...my favorite band for many years. He gave me his entire KISS album collection! It has been to this very day one of the best gifts anyone gave me. And had my brother being the age he was back then not used them for frisbees and aimed them at the neighbors house I would still treasure them..lol But it's the memories I'll always have and when I think of them I'll always be thinking about Ernie too. Good bye Ernie for now. Rest in peace. Luv Ya! God Bless You All
