I met earl many years ago . He was so loving and very sweet. At Christmas time I used to take cakes and homemade Christmas cookies. Then sat and talked about anything. He always ask about my family. He will be sadly missed.

Gary, your father was a dear friend there wasn’t a day that went by that we didn’t wave to one another across the road or call to check on one another. When he needed something fixed he always called James. Your father was a great man I miss his calls. I’m so sorry for your loss but he’s in a better place. We won’t be able to make it to his service with my cancer not taking any chances. Our hearts are with you that you find comfort. Sylvia and James Mr. Godfrey’s next door neighbors
