|Doran and family, So very sorry to hear about
Ernie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at
this difficult time. May God help you find peace
and comfort. RIP Ernie|
|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
Good bye Ernie for now. Rest in
peace. Luv Ya!
God Bless You All|
