Uncle Earl was very special to me. He kept in touch with me and I can hear his "How you be today?".

I "be sad" that you are no longer with us. I know my Mother, Hazel, is rejoicing with you as she loved you very much.

No adequate words to express my gratitude for his and Judy's support and love through difficult times.

Farewell to my "Special" Uncle.
