We were so sorry to read about Earl’s death. In the early eighties we lived next door to Earl and Gwen on Key Way. They were very nice neighbors, always friendly and pleasant. We will be praying for all of his family. With our sympathy and prayers, Sister Regina M Qualls, BVM and Sister Margaret Mary Cosgrove, BVM.
