Dear Carolyn, Sherry, & Desiree,

Our hearts and prayers go out to each of you in the passing of your father. Uncle Ernest, like the rest of the Cox brothers, was always there for me growing up. Uncle Ernest helped my mother and I when we did not have anything. We will always be grateful for his kindness toward us. I pray God's peace and understanding will be with you during this difficult time and in the days ahead.
Gene Belcher son of Lois Cox Belcher

Ernest will be very much missed by us, as he opened up his home and heart to us and we became part of his huge family when his daugher, Sherry, married our son, Karl.  We know his pain and suffering is gone, and he is resting in the arms of Jesus with a completely healed body.  Our deepest condolences go out to his entire family.

To all of Ernest's family, Don and I send our condolences.  My mother, Greta Hamm was Ramona's cousin and she loved Ramona and Ernest very much.  I believe they are all together again and in a far better place.
