Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of your family during this difficult time. Sending prayers for comfort and healing.

Gene was a wonderful teacher, a thoughtful faculty member and colleague and a good friend. He made an impact on both student and faculty lives at Pfeiffer for many years. His was a life well-lived. Condolences to Barbara and his children and grsndchild.

He was a dear friend a neighbor and he was missed when he left Gerton. You are in my prayers and thoughts Barbara.

Prayers for this family. Professor Earnhardt was one of my all time favorite professors during my time at Pfeiffer and Duke Universities. Professor Earnhardt's love for history and his students convinced me to switch my major to history from religion. A great teacher and role model.

Best wishes to the family at this sad time.

I will cherish memories of our (wife Marian and me) interactions with Gene and Barb over a decade or so of retirement in Asheville.
