"Earl today 44 years we laid you to rest I still remember it like it was yesterday.The one thing I remember the most was the pain in our mother's eyes.One of her last words on her death bed was to me please take of Earl's grave.She carried you Earl in her heart forever.A mothers love never dies.The day of your funeral was surreal I couldn't believe that you were really gone it felt like I was walking in quicksand my feet wouldn't move.It was a beautiful spring day the wind was blowing  and the sun was shining what a day to lay your brother into the ground.I remember the riding in the limousine with mom and I cannot remember who else was there it was all like a bad dream waiting for someone to wake me up.Earl I even remember the outfit I wore a green velvet suit I never wore that suit again it was laid to rest that day as well.Love you Earl and will never forget how you died and I will keep you in my heart forever you see a sister's love never dies.Love Joyce"

"Thinking about you Earl. Talked to Johnnie a few times this week, he's a mess. hahaha! Joyce sent me a Christmas card and it was sweet of her to do so. That makes a total of 2 of em so far. Guess I'm lucky and blessed to get that many. People done forgot the old traditions and the way we done things. Dadburn technology. You wouldn't recognize the way things are done nowadays. Nobody talks to anyone anymore. Damn shame too, cause its hurting us as a whole. No personalization these days. I guess I got lucky and made it this far in life and I really don't know how I did it? Thought I'd be gone in my thirties. I'm not and so I am fortunate to be able to call your family "friends" ! Not many of them around either. Ok, thanks for listening Earl, I'm gonna go for now. However this gets to you, Merry Christmas FRIEND.
Dave"
