I am so sorry for the loss of Uncle Earl! I am so grateful that I was able to visit and laugh with him at Pam & Brian's annual cookout! His sense of humor and wit I will always remember and the beautiful walking stick he made I will always cherish! My thoughts and prayers with all of the family, May he rest in peace!
