The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Earl's memory may do so by making contribution at the Allegany Nursing and Rehabilitation Activities Fund, 730 Furnace Street, Cumberland, MD 21502.
"Dad, I lost you today; so precious in my eyes. The world's greatest Dad, always there for me. What will I do without you? Dad, I'm thankful you waited on me. You gave me the last fifteen minutes with you. I know in my heart you are where you want to be, with Mom. She has put her angel wings around you and taken you home. You will always be my Daddy. I will always be your little girl. Forever in my heart. And the pain I feel will be put to rest, 'cause daddies and daughters are the best."
