We were sorry to hear of the passing of Ms. Ernest. I remember as a child at Greenwood UMC, the high notes in those old hymns were no problem for your mother to sing. Now, she is lending her voice to the Lord's choir in heaven. Sadly missed but her memory will be with those who remember her for a long time. We will keep the Ernest family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Judy and JC Testerman
