Dear Nancy, Please know that you and your family are in our prayers. It's been so many years since I last saw the both of you. I've since became a minister with a associate's degree in Christians Studies and a Bachelor's in Church Ministry. If there is anything at all I can do Please know I'm here for you. My youngest son told me of Earl's passing. Reverend Wanda M. Shoap
