    I don’t recall if I ever met Earl or not but I did talk to him on the phone a few times when I use to call Missy on her birthday since she was one of my favorite teachers. My heart and soul along with my thoughts and prayers goes up and out to Missy and to all those that this has effected with grief and sadness. God bless Missy and everyone else this loved and cared about this man.
