I am so sorry to learn of Earl's passing. He did a great deal of landscape work at my parent's home on Colonial Road in Grosse Pointe (Eleanor and Fred Thistlethwaite). And when my mother died suddenly in 1982, he came to the funeral home to pay his respects. I will always rememeber his gentle ways, warm smile and good nature. He was always a gentleman and a gentle man. I remmber him fondly. I will keep all of you in my thoughs and prayers during these difficult days. Jim Thistlethwaite
