    Back in the early ’80’s, I was designated by the company that I worked for, at the time, as the mail pick-up person at the downtown post office. I met Ernie on the back dock there. Although it was always early in the morning, he always had a smile on his face and pleasant remarks. Many, many times since then, I would run into him around town and he always remembered me. We were always happy to see each other but I always had to ask myself, if the situations were reversed, would I have remembered him? He probably dealt with numerous people in his job at the P.O. and to be remembered by him was an honor to me. That’s the kind of person that Ernie was. Thanks for the many years of service to our country. I too am a veteran. RIP Ernie.

    As an employee of the Amarillo Post Office, I was fortunate to know Ernie. He was always pleasant and it was my pleasure to know him.

    Expressing my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your loved one. May Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ comfort and console you through his word the Bible. God’s word promises at Acts 24:15 the hope of being reunited with your loved one again here on earth. You can have complete confidence in this promise because because God cannot lie and because of the resurrections of Lazarus and others that Jesus brought back to life here on earth. John 11:43, 44.
