I remember him when I was a child going to the kingdom hall. He was always so nice to me and my family. I send my love and condolences to his family.

Gail and I truly enjoyed being in the Congregation with Earl. He was an awesome Public Speaker and it was obvious that he loved Jehovah very much.

Regards to the family. You can see him in the resurrection!
