Hey Earl. Amy called me today and I only just learned of your passing. I wish I would have known you were taken ill. I wish we could have talked even just one more time. I will forever cherish the Easter Mass and the lighted candle through the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate that you sent me for Easter. May you rest in peace in the loving arms of God. I know you will meet Him. I am certain you will rise when He calls your name. No more sorrow, no more pain. I will surely miss our conversations and the wonderful cards and letters you sent. Please find my Dad as I would love for you to meet him. He was a Navy man too. I will always remember you friend.
