    Dear Eva and family,
    We are very saddened to hear of Earls passing. He was so happy this past summer playing cards with his children and grandchildren at Premier Lake. Enjoying the beautiful outdoors and sunshine surrounded by his family visibly showed in the happiness of his wonderful smile that was always lighting up his face. He will be greatly missed.
