Earle and I shared many classes together during our school years. I’m very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

All of us in the family had good memories of Earle growing up. The horses, goats, and cows she took care of. The VW beetle convertible, the Falcon station wagon I inherited from her after she used it for hauling hay, feed, and who knows what else, the stress of her boyfriends not calling her often enough, her water skiing, and the list goes on and on. We will always miss her.
