    My sister Alice and I have wonderful and warm memories of Ernest for over 30 years of him being our beautician. We will always remember his good sense of humor and his kindness in wanting to rescue animals and help needy people in any way he could.
    May he rest in eternal peace. We will miss him very much.

    Marjorie and Alice
