Ernest moved to St. Louis back in the earlier 80’s and joined the Local Cement Masons Union and continued his career as a cement finisher/laborer.

    Dad you were my pops, my friend, and my brother. Whenever I needed you, you were a call away, and I was a call away for you. Even though your death now separates us, I will continue to have your back as you protect mine. Although I will never feel your touch again, you shall forever touch my heart. We both spoke words we wish we could take back and replace, but we held no punches. That was our relationship, that was us! At the end of the day I was your son and you were my father. I love you and you love me. So go home, home to Maui and finally be free and enjoy peace in paradise.
    -See you in the sun Pops
