Ernie, you’ve been gone a year, and as you would have said, “We miss you more than when you were here.” 

For those of you not lucky enough to have known Ernie Menard, he was a long-time employee of and a really special friend to B&M.

 He was husband to Del for 63 years, loving father to Sue, Mike, Steve and Debbie, and friend to everyone he met.  

A cross between Yogi Berra and Coach, (from the televison show Cheers), he made every day a pleasure.

They don’t make guys like Ernie anymore, a loss for everyone.
