To my friend of 24 years. We have a lot of memories working together and your passing is so hard to accept, and that you’re gone to be with the Lord. We had some disagreements but most importantly, we shared a lot of laughters and at the end of the day, everything was well . I will greatly missed you my coworker, my friend and most of all ,my brother in Christ.

Dearest Maria and to the Tillman Family, My deepest condolences on the loss of your husband, brother, uncle and friend. I feel as though I know you all, Earl spoke of all of you often with much pride and affection. When first met we bonded immediately, he has a way to make everyone feel welcome. I was starting a new job as a Postal Police Officer at Headquarters. He saw a face he haven’t seen before and took the time to introduce himself and welcome me to the building. We even spoke Spanish with each other from time to time. It wasn’t the best spoken Spanish but it gave us the practice we both needed. I cherish our friendship! My friend you will be missed, you touch the hearts of many people. I’m struggling with you not being here, but I am comforted that you’re now at peace.

You will never be forgotten.
