Brother Earnest was a Wonderful & Godly Christian, a Fantastic Nebighor, & a great Friend. He & Miss Barbara have blessed my Wife Darla in so may ways & I enjoyed Ministering with Him, Praying with him by the mailbox & in his home during his illness. Never get it wrong, Brother Earnest DID NOT DIE, God just Changed his address from Kilgore, Texas to HEAVEN where he is more ALIVE than ever. I look forward to seeing my Friend again in Heaven some day. Praying for Comfort & Grace for Miss Barbara & the Family. We love You all, Evangelist Wade Eadie & Wife Darla - Galatians 6:14

Dear Barbara, and Kids,
This is one of the hardest tributes to write. Ernie is a fine man. A ready laugh, a sweet smile and always a song on his lips. We will miss him greatly but I would have loved to hear the musical chorus as he entered those gates. You are all in our prayers and have our love.
