A fine husband, father, brother-in-law and a friend. He was always calm and I think his favorite saying to me was “It will all come out in the wash”. We miss you Earl.

Sharing my memories of my best friends father, Mr. White.
I want to start from my childhood. I lived directly across the street from Mr. White. Andy and I became fast friends even though Andy is five years older. Every time I knocked on the door to hang out with Andy he always opened it and asked how school, football, and my family was doing. I knew he really cared, not just small talk. This continued un till Andy left for college.
We spent countless hours traveling to see Andy play college football. Football was a common bond we had. Mr. White even would come watch my Highschool football games. It made me feel very special that he would attend.
We would always be talking football, watching football, and even going to Chicago Bear game's. My favorite memory was watching the 2006 super bowl in his living room. The Bears returned the opening kick off, Mr. White was jumping up and down with pure joy, while Jake (the dog) was barking. That was my favorite Bear game with him because I knew how much he wanted them to win.
When stopping by to visit my parents I would always see him doing yard work and I would stop and catch up. Next thing I knew hours had past. When my father became sick, every Thursday Mr. White would take my parents trash cans down to the curb. I got a call from my mother asking if I was doing it? I said no, but I have a pretty good idea who is.
I will always think of Mr. White as my second father. Just a wonderful and loving man. I will miss you very much and thank you for everything you did for me. You will always hold a special spot in my hart.
I apologize if my spelling or grammar is incorrect... I did not do my worksheets.
