Ernie worked for Palace of the Governors natural history museum for 10 years. Built good relationships with his co-workers and supervisors (special mention Steve, Josh). Ernie was very proud of his job. When he started working there, Ernie taught himself everything there was to know about that museum. Ernie, trained several of the new guards as they came in. Ernie loved God the Father, Jesus & the Holy Spirit very much. Ernie had experiences with them several times. My husband would accompany me on prayer assignments and Christian conferences, those were some of our best times together. My man of valor. This past year and a half, Ernie’s been a great help to me caring for my dad, he was always doing yard work, or chores around the house. My husband also helped dad with things needing another man’s expertiece, Ernie loved dad, always very considerate with my him, sometimes he cared for him alone while I was out of town. I will always be grateful for his being a man of honor in caring for dad. Ernie’s conversations with dad were always in Spanish, it impressed me so much. That he did that to me it was a thing of respect for Ernie. My husband is always with us and always will be. His smile to me is infectious, as well as his handsome looks. First time we met I knew I met my soul mate. Knew in my heart someday we would be married. Ernie’s always been and will always be the LOVE OF MY LIFE. I am sure our children and grandchildren feel the same way.
