I understand that I was the last person Earlene talked to before she died. She had called me to tell me that she didn't need me to take her to the Janesville meat locker on Monday because her daughter had offered to take her. We knew each other from working at Covenant together and then we became even closer after we both became members of Pilgrim Rest.

Sparkle...She moved in a day after I did. I have called her 'Sparkle' ... due to the Twinkle of her Eyes. We'd read, discuss EVERYTHING...no topic too small. I hope MY Laughter & Love was Known to her as She lit up my LIFE... Anyone who knew her was BLESSED...my thoughts to her blessed FAMILY. She is missed!
