Rest in peace, Earl. Being so much older than I, we didn't know each other well, but you were still my brother,
In Jesus name I pray for you to be at peace.

We enjoyed having Earl and Mary Lou in our church services and enjoyed chatting with him on a daily basis. He will be missed. God Bless.

Sorry for your loss I was always wondering when uncle Earl would show up out of the blue again. My dad and I are deeply grieved at his passing away. My dad had hope to call or see him soon. But he is glad to have seen him several times over the last several years. I do wish that I myself would have looked him up the last time I was in Joplin. May the Lord Jesus Christ guide you into more understanding though uncle Earls passing.
