I only met Earl once...but feel as if I know I know his sweet wife Bonnie so well. As Bonnie's nursing instructor at UALR...I heard her speak often of Earl and I know he was instrumental in helping her very successfully achieve a lifetime goal of being a Registered Nurse. I truly believe he lived for Bonnie, their family, and their puppies. I had no idea of the length of service Earl sacrificed for our country in the Air Force. What a legacy he leaves.
