I just wanted to thank Earl and The Cipriani Family for supporting the ECPD. You were a safe place to gather, a friendly smile, and GOOD food. Earl and his Mom took care of the ECPD like family.
It's hard to see good people leave us, but he will never be forgotten.
Love Ed and Patti Baldzicki

I met Earl while we were in our twenties. He was a great friend to have. He Was always smiling and congenial. Would see him from time to time and he was always the same. Look up "Good Guy " in the dictionary and Earls name will be there.

Earl gave me my first summer job at 16 at ANGELA MIA and it was the longest summer of my life it lasted 33years. When he took me into his business he also took me into his heart and into his wonderful family. HE WAS THE MOST CARING MAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN.

My prayers and condolences to Earl's family. I grew up in East Cleveland and like many others loved to go to Angela Mia's pizza. I am grateful he keep the business going in East Cleveland.
