We sure will miss Earl. He was a good neighbor and friend. My daughter had a mystery clue birthday party one year and he willingly played the role of a cranky neighbor and when the girls got their clue from him, their eyes were as big as saucers because he did such a good job. He was a great guy. We are praying for Patricia and all of Earl's family and friends.
