    Mr. Earnie was a wonderful man! His family was his world. I met Earnie when I went to work for pwi/ basic energy & worked for him 15 years. He was a great boss, friend,& brother I was very proud to be part of his extended family, we all where more family than employees at basic. I admire him for the way he started out as a truck driver & worked his way up to terminal manager. He taught me alot. When ya did somthing wrong he had a way to talk to ya that when ya walked out the door you would stop dead in your tracks & figure out ya just got your tail in trouble. He would take time to talk with you if ya had somthing on your mind & give good advise, for you to think over about any situation. 1 day we was out checking somthing on my truck, My wife drove up rolled her window down & hollered man hobos Earnie laughed stuck his chest out & strutted over to talk for a second lol my ffriend , my bother you will live on in our hearts forever more! May ya rest in glouriess peace until we meet again later my hrother
