Condolences, Wayne, Eric, and Christopher. So sorry to hear of Uncle Earl’s passing. I can only think that he and Shirley are now together again, as they were for so many years. I was at Peggy’s Cove that night last week. The sun was bright red, then seemed to disappear into a peaceful grey sky. I wish you and your families peace and fond memories. Thinking of you.

Wayne, Eric, Chris and families
our condolences on Earl's passing. I know your family provided a lot of support to him over the past months, keeping him comfortable and looked after. We will miss our talks with him in the parking lot across from the Irving station in Mahone Bay. I know he missed Shirley a lot, but he continued to go on and be happy and go out to jams. Our neighbour, who visited the jam in Blockhouse always remembered Earl as having "the nicest hair". Our thoughts are with you. Debbie and John Hiltz.
