I’m going to truly miss seeing Mr. Earl. From the time I met him, he has always been a pleasure to talk with & joke around with. He had a great sense of humor, & I believe that’s what I’ll miss most. No matter his circumstances, he was still upbeat & happy to be alive. He’s been through a great deal these last few months, & his death was a shock to me. Last I saw him, he was doing so well. You’d never known he had been so critically sick, just weeks before. The world needs more men like Mr. Earl. Like any of us, he wasn’t perfect, & he knew it. However, he tried to be kind & loving to all he encountered. You can’t ask for someone to be better than that. He was loving & kind in ...a world that has not always been so loving & kind to him. Thanks for your service, Mr. Earl. Thank you for being a good & kind man. You are truly missed. It won’t be the same without you. Rest In Peace! I know you are dancing your way through those pearly gates & celebrating with our Lord & Savior!Read more
