Linda, Jan and Sandy

Just to let you all know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.No one was more ready to go home than her. I'll never forget the night before Mother's Day when she saw her two angels at the foot of her bed and was talking to them. She meant the world to me. We will truly miss her.

Love, Robert and Rhondia Cox

Ernestine is my cousin, we had Grandpas who were brothers, Pierce and Robert Rose, and we have known each other most of our lives. Grew up in the same community and went to the same church, New Zion Baptist. She was a fine Christian lady with a fine family and will be missed by us all but we can rejoice in knowing that being absent from the body she is present with the Lord. Our prayers and condolences are with the family and friends.

Linda and family

I am so sorry to learn of your mom's death. I know that all of you will miss her badly. I know that you will have many memories to comfort you in the coming days; however, Linda, I will be thinking of you and saying prayers for all in the family. Mitch and Ronecca, I will do the same for your family.

I will never forget October 22, 2002 when I got the call that Bro. Happ had died. As a young pastor, Ernestine ministered to me more than I could ever minister to her. I love her strength and quiet determination. I guess 10 years was long enough. She is with "Happy" and they are experiencing the joy of the Lord together.
