    Uncle you’ll forever be loved and missed. Still seems unreal. Thank you for all the memories and love you shared. Family my prayers and heart is with each one of you.

    Earl and Sally were both like family to me and my family. My brothers and sister went to school with their son and daughter (Earl jr) and Lisa. They babysat me. My parents visited them and they visited us and there was always plenty of laughs and coffee. I can’t express my sorrow and sadness when I heard of his passing. But I’m also relieved he’s not in pain anymore and he’s reunited with Sally , (probably having laughs with my mom and dad) in heaven.

    On behalf of the Henderson family, my condolences to your family on their loss of a GREAT MAN. His laughter, humor, and kindness will be missed. You were loved by many Earl. And your memory will live on.

    Rest in peace

    I have so many wonderful memories of Earl, Sally, Lisa & “Little Earl”. Earl was always so joyful. He worked hard, and knew how to laugh and enjoy his family and friends. Earl and Sally were so warm and welcoming. I remember, when visiting as a kid, Earl came home smelling of cow manure and offering a hug and me trying to escape him! Now You’re home with Sally. But you leave an empty spot in the hearts of those that loved you. Praying for comfort to his closest family and friends. I love you Lisa, BIG HUGS.

    I met Earl at Webster picking up his Great Granddaughter. He was always so friendly and kind. I always looked forward to seeing him. He was always so proud of his family and his heratage. Learned a lot about the family farm and what everyone did. Our visits were short but I enjoyed his company until the kids came out. He would have a smile on his face and was kind to everyone. You all had a great role model in your life. So sorry for your loss.

    So sorry to hear 🙁 Earl and Sally were such generous people. Lisa and Earl you are in my prayers.
