We will surely miss Mick and his friendly happy ways he always had. He will be very much missed, never knowing what gift you were going to get each time you talked with him. Blessings on you Katherine.

Katharine is my mother's cousin. (Beverly Hunter) I met Mr. Earnest at a family reunion about 5 years ago and again at Katharine's 80th Birthday Party. He was a lovely man with a creative sense of humor. We still have his "dime on pin" and washer/dryer. Such small items, but so memorable!
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his wife and family.

Our cousin Mick was one you always loved being around. Whether it was family history, or just one of his "tricks" you always felt secure and happy around Mick. I know he is with his Mom and Dad and brother, but, well, there's just yet another empty spot in my heart. Love each of you so much for too many reasons to list here. Thanks for helping me to grow up. I would not trade my raising on the farm with good sense faithful
people like ya'll!

We loved Mick..... he was the candy man to Caleb for all the years that we lived next door. There was nothing that he would not do if we needed anything. Mick and my dad,Wayne, went way back. There was no one like him... Mick was Mick. Prayers for all the family
