  • We were very saddened to learn of the passing of Uncle Earl and regret greatly that we are unable to attend his funeral. We wish you God’s comfort during this time of sorrow and will keep you in our prayers. We have fond memories of his two visits to our home in Laurel, Delaware; once with Uncle Edsel a few months before the passing of my mother Shirley and another time with Marilou when she and my wife Joy played the piano together as well as the harp. I remember his stories, his kindness, and the fact of being part of his family. I truly wish that I could be there to be with the family at this time. God bless you all.
