Ms. Jane,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you mourn the loss of your soulmate. I know that God will grace you with peace and comfort in the days ahead. Your faith and love for each other has always been a beacon of light for others.
"Earl the Pearl" is how I addressed him at work and whenever I saw the two of you. He'd give me that 'Earl' smile and so would you.
Stories.....he'd share with me of his bowling days with my uncle and others. The excitement and comradery with friends was always a strike in his book! Good times and good memories, a true spirit of friendship and community to last a lifetime.
May his soul rest in peace!
Peace and Strength!
