Cousin Joyce and Family,
Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this sad time of losing Earl. God moves in mysterious ways: my Mother and your Earl gone to their eternal home three days apart. Earl's genuine compassion for people's souls was always very evident in the way he lived his life.

Joyce I never would have imagined all those years ago going to church at Tamaqua that we would be planning my Dad and Earl's funeral in the same week. Praying God would comfort you and your family with fond memories.
Our deepest sympathy,
Ervin and Ruth Ann Zeiset

So sorry to hear of Earl's passing. He was a great man who was willing to serve where needed. We appreciate the many years he participated with We Care's ReNew Hope outreach event. His help with getting the PA bus together was a blessing to many. We Pray God's peace will comfort the family during this difficult time.
- For all of us at We Care, Don Metzler.
