    Thinking of you Lorraine and all of the family at this very sad time. We have very fond memories of Ernie when he worked for poolside services. E had my three kids convinced he was from sesame st and that Bert was at home. Each time my kids came to the pool shop they would excitedly run in the Ernie to see if Bert was with him that day hahahahaha. He was always good for a laugh. I thing that I will remember about him always. I am thankful that I fought up with Ernie at the Wandina shops just recently and had a great catch up chat. RIP Ernie ๐Ÿฆ‹โค๏ธ Love Jenny & Ross Baietta, Terry Mailey and family.

    Earnie, there was a time that you were a second Dad to me and Lorraine a second Mum,

    I cherish the memories of the times we had. The open door, ready smiles and no adventure too big or small on the back of a horse.

    I believe you were a blessed gentleman Earnie. Good fun, a love for the bush and all if itโ€™s characters.

    So sorry for your loss Lorraine, Raleigh and Naomi.

    All my love,
