To Peg, from Norm Gerlach: My heartfelt thoughts come out to you for the loss of Earl. He was a special individual that I had the privilege of working with. Not only a co worker but a friend. In those working years he often talked of you and your family and how special each one was to him. He will be missed but his memory is great! With caring thoughts and love, Norm Gerlach and Elaine Gerlach
