How ironic that we held a memorial service for Ernest not long ago. His death on June 25 left an empty place to be sure. Prayers for the family as we grieve for Sue and Ernest… and in Christian faith and hope we celebrate the gift of eternal life through Our Savior, Jesus Christ. May they both be blessed, together again in God’s dwelling in heaven. Pastor Doug VanNiel, St.John Baptist Church

Sending my prayers to Sue’s family. She and Ernest were best friends with my stepmother Barbara and my late Dad, EL. They played Rook every Friday night as long as their health allowed. They also loved to go to the Moose Lodge in Suffolk to the dances. I appreciate the friendship both Sue and Ernest gave to my family.
