Daddy, our hearts are broken and will forever miss you, but we absolutely know that you are with your Heavenly Father and reunited with all of your family that have gone before you. Thank you for always providing, teaching and loving us unconditionally.

Special Thank You to all of the staff at Azalea Nursing and Rehab for loving daddy like their own "Pop".

So sorry to hear of Mr Earl’s passing he was always such a nice man. I haven’t seen him in years and was mostly around him as a child. Children don’t forget adult kindness. I am Lena’s daughter, Earnie’ big sister. My condolences to your family for your loss. May God comfort you in your time of grief.
