Wow! I cant believe I didnt know about Earl's passing until yesterday! So sorry to hear of this tragic news! Earl was a very dear friend of mine. We used to live in the same appartment building. We had a lot of good times, he could always make me laugh! RIP dear friend!!

I cannot believe it has been two years since that day. I think of you often, still see your beautiful face! Many memories flow through my mind, taking me back to those days when we were young. I remember when you and Pat came back from Oklahoma! I ran down the steps and out the door jumping into your arms, wrapping my legs around you and almost knocked you down the steps! I REMEMBER the yesterday years as if it was still here! I am thankful that GOD gave us the times together that we did have....and MEMORIES to hold what is dear to us! I love you and I never will stop loving you!

Earl, you have the same name as my dad...who's been gone for 17 years. Although I did not know you, I know Karen and the boys..I know they love and miss you very, very much! Karen tells stories about you and the boys and how much you loved them. I am sorry you have gone to be with God, when so many more day's were left for you and your boys to become closer...only a bond that father and son know...Rest in peace Butch..you are dearly missed!

Earl loved his children very much! He had every picture of all his children lying out on his dresser and on the mirror of the dresser!
Earl asked me weeks prior to his death to tell his children that he loved them very much and that he was sorry that he wasn't a better father! Earl asked for his children to forgive him and know that he loved them!
