I have known Ernie my entire life.  I have listened to him play music.  I grew up as I felt like an extension of his family.  My prayers go out to the entire Bufford family.  They are like family of my own.  God Bless Ernie and RIP.

Not sure exactly what to say. Speaking from my heart I want to thank  you Ernie for the memories on Sycamore Lane in Richmond. Growing up, listening to you and Terry play music in the carpool. Yes even the singing of a Doris Day song you dedicated to me, lol. The neighborhood was great and you were part of the Why, it was.

God bless you, and I am sure you and your father are smiling from ear to ear locked in a warm embrace.

All I can say is thanks Ernie.
