To all the Rosser Family, our sincere condolences to you in this time of mourning, if you are mourning. I suspect this may be more of a celebration of Earl's life? What a legacy he's left to this world ! Wish I could have been part of that group pictured with him,--we were in classes together, but my family was so poor, I had to get a job,--missed out on social life/friends,--but, such is life for some. Always liked Earl,--he was a prince of a fellow!
You all were/are a truly Blessed Family! Best wishes & regards to all.
Hugh Crawford, RHS Class of '47

Dear Laura,
Your classmates from The Russell High School Class of 1948, extend to you and your family our heartfelt sympathy in this time of great sorrow.

Many of us knew Earl for seventy plus years and have pleasant memories of good times shared. We watched the video with interest, recalling many faces and places, the hours spent on the tennis courts at East Point Swimming Pool, the Hockey Games in College Park and yes, your wedding at First Baptist Church, East Point, just to name a few.

Earl was a fine and gentle man, he'll long be remembered for his ready smile and kind words. He will be missed by many.

Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you now and as you face the lonely days ahead.

Sincerely,

Bill McKibben, Pres. RHS Class of 1948
