My visits to Berryville will never be the same. Your smile, laughter and just 'full of life' personality will be missed!

Ernie you will forever be in my heart for the wonderful way you (and Bob) treated my Mom. She was able to live out her life in the apt. where you "boys" always checked in on her and treated her as friend, but so much more, she loved you. We shared many wonderful moments, shared tears and friendship. I know Mom is waiting for you so God speed!

You were one of my Mom's "boys". You were always so good to her and made her be able to live in her apartment until she passed away. I know she has ben waiting for you in heaven and that fills my heart with joy. God speed.

Dear Ernie, I am sure you are wearing the most bright colors ever....thee must be lots of colors where you are now. So many memories... Every morning, when I pick up my working bad, I smile thinking how much you liked to used it as a back holder while sitting on the office chair we shared. You always liked and supported my "crazy" ideas and I thank you for this. Now, let me use Mary Oliver lines before I let you go... “to live in this world you must be able to do three things to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go” Fly high with your beloved Bob, together again where you will never have to say goodbye anymore. We will meet again, until then keep inspiring our lives with your joy you always had in your heart. Thank you Ernie. I love you

Ernie my dear friend of many years I will miss you and your smile! We have laughter together, we have cried together and we have been angry with each other! But, that's what friends do! I think back to when we first met and you did not like me one little bit but then one day everything changed. I remember asking you what had changed and all you said was that I changed! Never knew how I changed but I guess I did! I will always remember you by the front door at work after my retirement party and I was leaving and both of us was crying. You looked at me and said I will miss you and then you said Barbara don't you dare leave this parking lot until you stop crying. You never cry and drive at the same time. Thank you Ernie for your friendship! You will be greatly missed!!!

Ernie was a hoot! Never had a conversation with him that he didn't make someone laugh. Did not have the privilege of knowing Ernie for long but glad our paths crossed. Feeling sad.

"Cheer up Buttercup." - Ernest Hottle
Tanya Hurst left a message on November 5, 2015:
Ernie has been my friend for almost 7 years. We have danced together, decorated together, cooked, cleaned and served together. We have wrapped Christmas presents together, been mad at each other and stormed away from one another. We have shoveled snow together and thrown snowballs together. We have loved others together, cried together, hugged, and laughed together. We have done all those things that good friends do, together. Our last conversation was laughing about the time we were decorating an entire building for Christmas...and we were tired and stressed. I made an off-handed comment, and he threw the sparkly blue material across the air, (if Ernie was involved, there would definitely be sparkle!) climbed down the ladder, and stormed off, telling me I could do my own decorating. It was an absurd idea, because nobody could decorate like Ernie! I asked him if he would miss me when I move away next year. He said no, and laughed. He was right and it is I, who will miss him. We shared a bond, made strong, through heartache and triumph. I can see Ernie dancing up the golden street now, smiling and throwing his hands in the air, announcing emphatically, "I'm here!..." followed by, "Bob, don't you ever leave me again!..." "Now, get over here and give me a hug!" I wish I had more time to hug you, Ernie. When you meet my Mom up there, be nice, and don't you dare tell any of our secrets. Love, Tanya aka "Red." Thank you for teaching me how to use nice, white, high heels when needed. I'm bringing them with me when we meet again...

Perhaps they are not stars but rather openings where our loved ones (and loved friends) shine down to let us know they are alright now - shine on Ernie, shine on.

I have known Ernie for over 20 years and for the last several months worked with Ernie. He and I had a very special friendship at work and outside of work. I will miss him greeting me in the mornings and us leaving in the evenings together and more than anything I will miss his big smile and the way he laughed. R.I.P. My dear friend!
