I would rather have reached out and shook your hand Earl and shared a few shipyard quips of good times and satisfied jobs well done. A Patriot to no end and a pride in his tasks overshadowed by no man. The old adage of "if I am going to do a job its got to be done right" was always in the back of my mind when interfacing with Earl. Earls faith shone like the morning sun when he shared the SON with you. He is missed very much.
It is with deepest sympathy for you in the loss of Earle. I had worked with him for several years and corresponded with him via e-mail since both he & I retired. I regret that I didn't take the time to call him in response to his e-mail request sent to me in February.
May God continue to fill the void that was left in his return to Him.
We are so sorry for your loss. We are praying for your family during this time. May God bless all of you. Carl and Linda King
We join with you in your time of grieving, but also rejoicing that Reverend Cooley is at home with our Savior, Jesus Christ. May your family be blessed during your time of loss.
Anna and family,
I was saddened by the passing of your husband and father. He was a good man, and a friend to all. To know him, was to know that he loved God and he loved his family. He will be missed by the many souls that he touched with his talks about our Lord. May you find peace in knowing that he has received his just reward.
My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to the Cooley family. Mr. Earl was a fine man, and his presence will be greatly missed in the community!
My sympathy goes out to the family during your time of grief. May God's loving-kindness comfort you and help you through this difficult time. (Psalm 119:50,76)
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
