Uncle Earl I will miss you until it is my time.
You and my Dad were my heroes.
You were fearless and tough but so loving and giving to your family. Several times you took us in when we had no where to go.
I am very sad you have passed but find peace in thinking about the glorious reunion you are having with those that have passed before you.
We could always count on you.
I Love and Miss you Dearly
