Dear Florence and family and next generation of family, How dearly my heart remembers the essential supportive presence Earl and you, Florence, were to me during my entire time at Queen of Angels School. It remains one of my happiest memories of what a school community can achieve when the parent, student, and staff body act as one educative community. Your lovely testimony to the good man Earl was rings so true to me. My heart was warmed by your loving capturing of his presence to so many. Thank you for the goodness of God’s presence you keep alive in our midst from generation to generation. In gratitude and with loving prayers to uphold you in this time of grieving, Patricia
