We just now heard the sad news about Earl. Our families go "way back." Earl and you, of course, were always there...part of Crystal Lake and precious, family memories. (Great Photo Gallery…#6, ah, yes.)
We are so very sorry for your loss and hope there is some measure of comfort for you in knowing that others care. Our thoughts, prayers, and hearts go out to you and to all of your family.

Dad Duffy- Thank you for all the love you have given me and my family. Thank you to the entire Duffy family for welcoming me into your family and including me as one of your own. I love all of you! You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Nanci and family:
We are so very sorry for your loss. Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you and your family! May your dad rest in peace and be surrounded by lots and lots of shamrocks! xoxo
I am so sorry for your loss. Earl was a great man. I remember the countless hours he volunteered at Pioneer Center. He always had a smile on his face and willing to assist. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Cheryl, Sharon and family, I am so sad for you. You are in my prayers.
I am so sorry to hear of Earl's passing. We shared some fun-loving times when we were young..remember the good times. God Bless You & the family.
Sharon, you and your family will be in my prayers. So sorry for your loss.
Addendum: I meant no disrespect in referring to Earl as "Duffy." My work in Hines VA Hospital often led to my referring to my patients by last names, first names and their referring to me as Ma'am or Mrs DeSmet. I should have called your husband Earl or Mr Duffy. Forgive me do.
Sharon, my sympathy to you and all your family. Life does always end for all of us, so celebrate your lives every precious day. It sounds as if Duffy lived his life to the fullest and lived to make others happy and to above all love his family. Capture the sweet memories and hold them in your heart. Tears of loss we cannot evade but as time goes on, we find ourselves smiling at how he talked to the dog, loved his children and grandchildren, how he felt about his truck, and, above all, how your first meeting and falling happened and how sweet a love you had- no, still have. Life on this earth may end, but LIFE goes on perhaps elsewhere and certainly you and all your and his family will keep him and his love alive in your hearts. Life IS to be CELEBRATED. With you, allow me to celebrate his!

Sharon, I was saddened to hear of your husband's passing. Since we live on the west end of CL also we would see him driving around in his truck quite often when he had his business. May you feel the Lord's presence in your sorrow.
Sharon and family,
Earls laughter and smile will be missed by all. He touched the lives of so many and we will carry him in our hearts and memories of a good man.
We, the Woods-Clem bunch, always enjoyed having all of you as our dear friends and neighbors .
God be with you all in this journey
