Dale & Family -

I am very sorry to hear about Ernie's passing. I always had a special place in my heart for Ernie--he was a very sweet, kind and easy-going person, enjoyed working with him at HRD/Delphi. He will be missed and will always think of him fondly. My condolences to his family and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
