Condolence from Mary Jolliff Moore on June 2nd, 2020 7:18 pm

I think we were kin, through the Whites. Beulah White Gaylord was my grandmother Mary White Jolliff’s cousin, and that’s what makes me think of the relationship. I would be proud to be kin to such a hard-working Christian gentleman. That’s what the world needs more of, especially now. And eloquent ones! Family, let our Lord keep you safe, and let your memories sustain you.

Condolence from Mr. &Mrs. Alden Winslow on June 2nd, 2020 7:24 pm

We have so many good memories of Mr. Ernest. He was a man of great integrity and strong Christian character.
He honored God and God honored him in so many ways, including giving him a beautiful family – all strong Christians. May God bless and comfort you all and give you His grace and peace.

Condolence from Evangeline Stevenson on June 9th, 2020 2:34 pm

Mr. Ernest Winslow was a spiritual giant in my eyes. It was a privilege to have known him. Only eternity will reveal the many lives he influenced for good. He exhibited all the fruits of the spirit in his every day life: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
He was faithful to his God, his family and his church.
He has gone to his eternal home and may we all live lives pleasing to God so that we may all meet him and be together forever.

Condolence from Lisa Hollowell on June 9th, 2020 4:10 pm

Mr. Earnest was one of the most caring men I’ve known in my lifetime. I have fond memories of seeing and talking to him over the years at family Bday parties and church gatherings at EMC. It’s a blessing to know this world is not everything and he lives for evermore in Heaven with my savior and many family and friends who fought the good fight and received Jesus as Lord and redeemer of our sins. Love and prayers ♥️
