I did not know Earl but I was hoping to share some words comfort. It's never easy to lose someone you love. God promises us that we will see our loved ones again in the very near future.

Some Wilson members grew up with Earl. Lawrence Wilson's family appreciated
the visits from Earl, when he was in the VA area, as Lawrence had become
visually impaired. The visits showed his caring personality and how he had
not forgotten his roots. He will be missed as we extend deep condolences
to the family.

Such a kind man Mr. Butler was. Always a smile and a welcome I received from him on every visit to his home to see Lisa. My fondest memory of Mr. Butler will always be when he pulled out his juicer, during one of my visit's and made a wonderful healthy cup of juice for us. My condolences to the Butler family. My mom and I will continue to keep all of you in our prayers.
