My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I always loved talking with your dad. His sense of humor was so infectious. His kindness always shined! I can’t think of him without a smile on my face. His love for his family, his joy rides in his old car, his gator rides w Blue.... he lived and loved life. Give Barb a huge hug from me Earl. God bless 🙏🏻😇

Well, I’m sure going to miss all of the good times, deer hunting, drinking a beer and just good times always. I joined the Navy in 1973 and moved away but I never came back to PA to visit that I didn’t stop to visit Earl and Barb. It sure won’t be the same coming back and not getting to stop by and visit. You were a Buddy (Dad) Thank You for Your Service and R. I. P. Brother🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🎺
