  1. Eddy, Linda, Estilee,Grands: I had heard of Earl’s illness. I sure am sorry I didn’t get to see him. He was a real friend to me there at Deaverview; always with a smile and an encouraging word. Your comfort is sure during these days because it has come from the Lord Jesus Himself. Hope to see you Saturday. Dale
