  • I, along with the Benedict Family, wish to extend our sympathy to the family of Ernie Moore. He was a kind and very funny man – he kept us all laughing whenever we visited with him. He stopped by Mt. Carmel East to visit my father, Willard Benedict (95) before he passed in 1993. He had a few jokes to share with Dad at that time! We will always remember Ernie!
