Earl Saul, God doesn't make people how he made Earl anymore. A man whos life can be defined using three words. Strength, Courage, and Hope. Earl was strong throughout his treatments, which inturn made his family strong. Earl's courage continued until his final breath, he was never afraid. Finally there's Earls Hope. When the doctors gave him six months to live, Earl said no, I have longer than that. Earl never gave up, only if he knew what he's instilled in each and everyone of us. This one man has changed the life of hundreds. He smiled when he was in pain, got out of bed when he was tired, went through with plans when he felt he couldn't. There was a song a few years ago titled Live Like You Were Dying. Earl Saul lived everyday as if it were his last before he got that terrible diagnoses. We shouldn't be mourning the loss of Earl Saul, we should be celebrating his life. We should be celebrating what Earl has given us all, Strength, Courage, and Hope. God Bless.

I was only 10 years old when you were born, you were a sparkle in many eyes. As you grew, your kindness did too and you became the man we all know.
A loving, caring, sweet giving soul with a true, heart of gold!
You gave all to what you believe in and have fun in what you do...hunting fishing bowling or just hanging out, your friendship is what shines through.
In all of the ups and downs you've endeavored, you have stayed who you are...
That sweet boy with the sparkle in his eyes
The kind man who would give all
The father who would care for, teach and adore his children
The friend who could always be counted on
My loving cousin with the warm beautiful smile that is never ending, to whom I care for so deeply...
There are only a few men in my life to whom I have looked up to,
My Father, your Father, my Brother and YOU.
You went on to teach me to fight and to believe in myself. To be a friend to others by giving, caring, and sharing...for that I thank you.
You were a fighter with determination to win. To me you are a true winner.
God got one great person when he took you. We lost an Angel, as Heaven received one!
The sparkle in your eyes, the warm smile from your lips and the kind tender words from your heart will forever be in my heart!
I love you Earl Saul, my Lil' Cuz!!!

Earl...Joe and I were so blessed to have you in our lives. You have touched us so deeply with your love, strength and courage. Joey Still talks about the time that you and Joe took him fishing. You gave Joey a dollar for catching the "biggest" fish and you bought him an ice cream cone on the way home. He still has that dollar in his tackle box. I think he will keep it there forever so every time him and his dad go fishing, you can go with them. We love and miss you dearly. To Carolyn: you are nothing less than an angel and to be able to witness the love that you and Earl shared has been a honor and a true life lesson.
Love you both very much
Joe Shannan Kelsey and Joey
