Ernie was my best friend growing up. We spent a lot of time together exploring and having many wonderful adventures. I would have been bored out of my mind if I had not had Ernie to pal around with. He was always eager to share and had a very kind heart and giving soul. I fondly remember Ernie and I walking down the road kicking cans and singing a Tennessee Ernie song. We had fun in his old English Ford and once got stuck on a railroad track when a train was coming toward us. We pushed the car off the track and got so tickeled that we ended up pushing the car in a ditch and it turned over on its side. To this day, I still talk with our grandchildren about my adventures with Ernie. I was so thrilled when Ernie's parents moved into our old farm home in Oak Grove. The Stokes moving into our old house solidified our shared memories. Ernie will be missed. The world is a better place because of Ernie's contributions and his life examples.
I will miss you.

With respects and regards,
John Nussbaumer
