I had the pleasure of working with Earl at Tower Hill Camp for 6 years. He was such an inspiration to me and always brought joy and love with him when he and the Circle of Love visited the camp. He will remain one of my favorite people. I have moved to a new camp in Groveland CA and will bring a piece of his spirit with me. Gods blessing to all his circle, family and friends. Such a wonderful man. Kim Bosse'

Walden family,

I've just returned from out of town to read that my dear friend, from our East Chicago Washington High School days, passed away. We were such close friends. We lost contact with each other after I went into the service, but I would often bump into Earl now and then...and we'd always talk about the good old days in school. Earl was a good friend, one of a kind, and I will miss him. May your memories of Earl soothe you, your friends comfort you, and your family's strength help your hearts begin to heal. May the love you all shared sustain you through this time of sorrow. May he rest in peace.

I was blessed to have you in my life. You lighted a spiritual path to strength by reliance on God. You demonstrated that love was manifested by service and sacrifice. You were a leader by example; a warrior through action. Go now and rest in the embrace of God's perfect love and understanding as his faithful servant. We will continue to feel your smile at Ironwood. Thank you Walter E.
