This is the hardest and saddest time in my life in losing my best friend, my husband, the love of my life, my soul mate, my Earlio. Tuesday Heaven got another angel. I first met Earl when I was in 6th grade in the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, VA. Earl was one of our paper boys, once I got to 8th grade he had failed the previous year and was at Thomas Jefferson Middle School his locker was above mine! I only remembered him from when he was our paperboy. Anyway, I remember we both went onto George Washington H.S. I remember seeing him but we hung around with a different crowd of friends. Fast forward to 1972 and Earl got out of the Army he started to hang around with his old friends up on the “Avenue”. By that time his friends were my friends and we started going out. We went to a lot of concerts we both love the Blues and Rock and Roll. It was an awesome time for us we fell in love. Earl loved the Blues so much like Muddy Waters, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker and many, many more. Earl taught himself how to play and he was great! We still have the wood box my dad had made for him to store all his harmonicas. Everyone in the family and friends loved to hear him play his harmonicas he was that good. He would jam with friends off and on for years. Earl had a special bond with my sisters Bonnie and Patti he was their brother they never had. I have so many stories from our family I would be here for months. I will save some for his Celebration of Life in the Fall and service at Quantico National Cemetery.

We both loved going to the Outer Banks our first trip was in 1978 with a lot of our friends I think a caravan of 7 vehicles driving from Alexandria to Cape Hatteras, NC. We loved it down there we continued to vacation in NC for almost 40 years. Our family and my sister’s families always spent a lot of time together whether it was just hanging out partying, celebrating birthdays, holidays, barbecues and more. I have to mention Four Winds Campgro

It’s sad to hear of Earl going, and I want to give my condolences to the whole family. Although I’ve been a lot closer to other people in the family, I also have memories of Earl and I’ve actually known Earl for longer than I’ve known most other people in my life, going back to High School in the 90’s. I thought about memories to share about Earl, but I had to dismiss a few for now because of appropriateness. I did think of a good one though. In High School I did some crazy things, stuff that most people wouldn’t even think about, but if they did, they definitely wouldn’t do them. I printed fliers for a fake mowing company and delivered them in the Worrell neighborhood. I won’t say the name of the fake company here, but it was derogatory towards Bryan, my friend and Earl’s son. In my head it was a harmless prank. Anyway, Bryan’s neighbors called him, asking him to mow their yard. I put the price as ridiculously cheap, $5. Earl said something along the lines of, “Bryan, it’s $5! Go mow the lawns.” I just thought that was so funny, partially because Bryan was so annoyed about the whole prank.
