    A good man is how I can describe Earnest. God knows he loved Dee! Loss is hard, I know firsthand, but knowing he’s no longer suffering, what a relief! Take this time, family, to get back to communicating with one another, make some new memories because we all have to leave this place for another and being able to smile about those gone on before us – Priceless!!!

  • Barbara J. Wilson says:

    Just hear of Earnest’s passing, and was saddened to hear. Earnest was an employee of mine at GSP for 12 years as well as a friend. He is now at peace and pray that all of the family can find inner peace as well as he has gone home to be with the Lord.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all- Earnestine and the entire family at this difficult time.

    Sam Logan was also a close friend and neighbor for 30 yrs. May their both rest in Peace.
