I just learned about the loss of Mr. Earl. I'm so sorry Mrs. Audrey. My dad, Talmon Morris, worked with him at the paper mill and always thought a lot of you both. I hold a fond memory of getting a puppy from you for a friend of mine who had lost his cow dog. I got to keep that dog overnight and fell in love with her instantly. I named her Miss Audrey Bo Nubbins and called her Missy. I almost could not give that dog away, but she found her new home the next day. The last time I saw her she was running cows in a pasture in Clay County, happy as could be. May memories such as this bring comfort during such a difficult time. God Bless You and Your Family.
