I am so sorry for your lost. When I was with the PA Farm Bureau, I thoroughly enjoyed the quarterly visits with Earl. Earl was so proud of his Silver King Tractors. Earl was always so kind and a joy to visit. When I left Farm Bureau, it was a hard decision to leave, because I knew my visit at the Smoker House would end. He always had a story and a smile to share.
