Debbie, Renee, Tricia, Deanne and your families, I extend my deepest condolences to you all. Your dad was a great friend and neighbour to my family. He and Frank shared a common interest as they were both fans of Sprint car racing, and they (along with others at times) would travel together to the U.S.A. to partake in these competitive events. Earl was such a good natured person, and it was always a pleasure to chat with him. Whether visiting at the family home or randomly bumping into Earl, I remember the greetings with hugs that were heartfelt and sincere. May the memories of your dad bring you comfort always. Hugs, Mary Wanecki
