I met Earl in 1964 when I married his sister. Earl was and is country and he had a heart of gold. He liked to
fish and he liked to play horse shoes and he was great at both. He was like a brother to me and later in life
he would always say with a smile, How are you Chief.
Each time we would visit Louise would take him aside an ask isn't it time you got yourself right with God and his answer
would always be, I am a good person.The last time he listened with his heart and accepted Christ as his savior. When Mary informed me he died, I saw a young Earl and he asked how are you Chief. He will be missed.
