You were My old Buddy. We were blood brothers, we caught the fish and shot the guns. We rode the motorcycles coast to coast and from Florida to Alaska.  Your memory will always be with me.I will put tears in the wind when I ride. To all family and friends he was a good man. There are no words

So sorry to lose Mikes good friend Ernie. He smoked some meat for us a few times and he enjoyed doing it . I missed most of the good times with him due to his illnesses, but have heard many stories. He will surely be missed. I’m sure he will watch down us as we fish and ride motorcycles.
