I knew Ernie for 50 years, first playing trumpet to his trombone, and later bass behind the horns. Once went on a camping trip to Deep Creek Lake on our motorcycles but it was music that kept us linked. I roomed with him on the road and have many great memories, lots of fun with his humor. He was a dedicated musician, and I was impressed when he added saxophone to his talents. Last visited him before he moved from Park Lane. Rock on Ern!
