Condolence: Though I never knew Ernie, his very kind voice always seemed to me like he was a good friend, or neighbor to me! I loved his singing,and I'm glad he's rejoicing with the angels and now is singing around God's throne!

Condolence From: Betty Poole
Condolence: Asking God to give each family member, comfort, peace and strength during this difficult time. Ernie was a true gentleman who loved God, his family and friends. He will be remembered as a guy who loved bluegrass music and it showed each time he stepped on the stage to play. I remember Ernie when he sang lead for the late Dr. Ralph Stanley. He has graced the stage with many well known bluegrass people and bands. He did an awesome job when he sang our National Anthem at the opening of a NASCAR race. Rest assured that Ernie has received his complete healing and is resting in the arms of Jesus. The heavens choir received a new member the day Ernie past. He is singing with his mom, dad, family and friends. I'm sure Dr. Ralph Stanley was there as well as others to welcome Ernie home. Rest assured if you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour that you will see him again and what a Great Reunion Day that will be. God's blessings to each and everyone. Sincerely, Betty Poole

Condolence: Praying for you all .I know your heart is broken because God has taken your Daddy Home. I didn't know your dad well But I know our Forrest loved your DAD and thought Highly of him And that he was so good to our son .What better praise can be said of someone than he was kind and generous and so up-lifting to others No matter what he was going through.
I just know the music has to be sweeter in heaven now just because Ernie is there
