My prayers to Earl's family. My mom and dad, Hazel and Floyd Mooney, were neighbors of Earl's for many, many years! Just recently mom told me the story of Earl coming over and killing a snake in the yard. She said she couldn't have asked for a better neighbor than Earl. May you have many memories to cherish and to help you get through this difficult time. God bless.
