    I meet Ernie 18 years ago when we worked at Azteca milling, he was such a great guy, found out he liked the Coboys and fishing like myself. We have fished a lot together, I will miss those days, no matter what we had fun, and he always had red dye on his lures it was his trade mark. My heart goes out to his wife, kids and rest of the family, he will always be in our hearts, we love you Ernie and, I will truly miss you my brother and friend. Love ya John and Michelle chaney
