My condolences to the Hill Family. I just learned of your father's passing. He was such a pleasant man & I'm glad I had the opportunity to make his acquaintance. The time we have together is never enough, the love we have is never ending. Those we love but say goodbye to will never be forgotten. May the time you shared & the memories carry you through this difficult time. You are in my thoughts & prayers.

I will miss the physical presence of this fine gentleman in this world. Since I met him at IBM in the early 1980s, Earl has been a trusted mentor, a helpful resource, and a loyal friend. Though his passing took my breath away, memories of his quick wit, his pride in his children, and his adoration for his best friend and wife Tammy will continue to bring a smile to my face.

Dear Earl, yours was a life well lived. Rest in peace.

Earl has been a wonderful colleague and friend over the past twenty years that I've been at Emory. His distinctive voice and generous spirit quickly come to mind.

I worked with Earl at Goizueta for the last 15 years. He was one of my favorite Faculty. Always had a pleasant smile and a warm hug. I'm happy to have gotten my last warm hug at our Thanksgiving luncheon a few weeks ago. I'm also an ex-IBM'er and we had that in common. He'll be dearly missed in the GTS department at Goizueta. My condolences to his family. May God comfort each of you.
