    You sometimes made me angry when you with your long
    arms held me offf when I was trying to slug you when we
    were growing up. But you always protected me from the
    bullies. Now, great brother, you are in the loving hands
    of the real GREAT PROTECTOR!! No more struggles.

    So sorry about uncle Earl’s passing. I had not seen him since he and his family came to visit us in Pensacola in the 70’s. I thought the rv they came in was so cool. We only traveled in our station wagon .

    As another 3rd Street Northsider, I was well aware of Earl’s whistle…it was time for his kids to come home. The Boor children brought new adventures to the neighborhood. My sincere sympathy to all of his family.

    I had the pleasure of working with Earl at 3M. At one point he was my supervisor. I enjoyed his sense of humor! My condolences as I know he will be greatly missed even though he is in good hands.
