    Although it is difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may the memories you have of your beloved Earl comfort and bring you strength tomorrow. I remember visiting the Collins farm back in the early 70’s as a young girl. Earl always had a smile and loved to tease the Clarke sisters. Even to this day, 45 years later, I can hear music coming from the upstairs window where Earl had placed his stereo speakers and would play Neil Young and James Taylor. Thank you Earl, it touched my soul.
