Delores and Family,
I was heartbroken to see this news this afternoon. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I always liked Earl. He always greeted me with a big smile and hello and was always just a comfortable person to be around. I just know how much you'll all miss him. I hope time heals your pain and you find healing in the happy memories. I know I'll always remember him with great fondness. My love to you all, Janice (Hellmer) Augustine
