    I am a close friend of the Schuster family and am appalled that Ernie’s 2 sisters were omitted from the obituary. Those are his blood relatives. Instead his wife posts about her own daughter (not Ernie’s) and her own grandchildren. That was totally uncalled for and hateful. Ernie was a great guy and knowing him, I know he loved his 2 sisters before Lynn came along and tore them all apart. I am just shocked that someone could be so vicious at a time like this. Ernie, may you rest in peace and to Lynn, all I can say is KARMA!!

    I totally agree with you, Karma. I was shocked that Ernie’s family wasn’t even told about the funeral. This is a time when everyone should come together, make peace and remember Ernie and his life. I feel bad that his family was treated this way, and don’t know how his wife will be able to live with herself after treating them so badly during this sad time. Sorry to be posting this on Ernie’s obituary, because he was a decent, nice guy and deserved this to be handled better than it was. Ernie, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you are riding your bike across those clouds up in heaven. God Bless You!
