    Thanks, guys. I don't know what took him at such a young age. I'm literally still in shock just finding out about his passing last week. I had no idea until this morning that he is no longer with us. I can honestly say that I've never had a truer friend. He was a great guy.

    Please accept my condolences on your loss, Rex. I'm so sorry...........sometimes it's hell to care about other people, but if we didn't, we'd miss out on all the joy they give us and the new dimensions they bring to our lives.

    Godspeed, Earl. And Rex, you're in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thanks again, guys! I found out a little more about Earl's death from his father. Earl wasn't feeling well and went to the hospital. They gave him some meds and sent him home. Later that night, he took a turn for the worse and was rushed back to the ER. In short order he was placed on life support and passed away early the next morning. The results from the autopsy have not come back yet. This was all very sudden and Earl, to everyone's knowledge, was in good health. Perhaps, when the results come back, we can have some sort of closure.

    Thanks for the warm thoughts.


    No, I never did find out the cause. I'm still trying to find out without imposing or being rude. Its been a difficult thing to do. I think I know a person who is still close to Earl's sister, who may be able to help.

    As for remembering my friend today, I sent his mother some flowers and also some flowers to the cemetery to be placed on his grave.

    That was sweet.

    I do hope you find out what happened........."closure" may be overrated, but sometimes, it's better to have something concrete to blame for a loss, than to wonder forever what caused it.
