I find it hard to find the right words to express what I am feeling as I write this. Uncle Earl was what every man strives to be. God, Country, and Family. He set an example of these values my entire life. As a child, when he talked, I kept quiet out of respect. I knew the result any other action would bring, from Daddy. As an adult, I listened with heart-felt wonder and love. I will always remember Uncle Earl for the way he lived. The cigar, the endless smile, and that shine that was always in his eyes! If it is possible, heaven is a much better place with his being there to accept his rightful place with the rest of the Barkley family that is welcoming him home.
To Aunt Louise, Pat, Tim, and John: Please know that I am loving, thinking of, and praying for all of us, at this time of great loss.
In closing, I just must say, what an honor and blessing it was, and always will be to have had you all in my family. What a life Uncle Earl lived!!
God Bless you all.
As always, I am Tab

I want to pass my sympathies along to Louise and the family. Earl Lee was a wonderful man and I remember many hours listening to my grandparents and him talking on Sunday afternoons when I was a child. My prayers are with the entire family. May God place His arms around you all and give you peace.
