From: Yvonne Bergman
Relation: Long time friend of the family. Iam 54 and met Ernie when I was 9

I’m so sorry to read of Ernies passing. I worked for Ernie for many years and learned a lot from him. He was generous to me and my family and I will always remember how well he treated me although we had our differences. My husband and I are saddened of his passing at such a terrible time.

From: Rob Reid
Relation: Friend

Ian and Keith, very sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad.
Ernie and I had many great conversations at the restaurant when I would drop in working or on days off. He would always greet me by name and we would have a chat and a laugh. I always enjoyed those times.
My condolences to the entire family.
