    I was so sorry to hear about the loss of this kind and compassionate man. He was fun to be around, loved music and devoted so much time and effort in assuring his music was in perfect condition. Although I have not seen him for many years I still considered him a brother ❤️
    God bless and give Ernie and his family peace and strength to endure this great loss.
