Barbara Stanton Maxwell: My family had the pleasure of watching some of the golf buddies in action, including my dad, Tom Stanton, when they went to Florida in the winter to golf. I wonder if there is still money on every game in heaven? So sorry about Earl's passing, He was so chipper and looked as dapper as always the last times I saw him. Your family is blessed to have had his company for such a long life, and I know your love toward him was appreciated, he told me so.

Earl and the Wrinklies... what a crew! When my dad, Gene Frymoyer, returned to Pa for the final time, the highlight of his week was breakfast with the Wrinklies. I had the pleasure of seeing Earl and the guys when I’d drop him off some mornings.
Earl always greeted me with a smile and some conversation. He was one of the good ones. My
deepest sympathy to Earl’s family and to the Wrinklies. Love, Jill
