Our Sincere Condolences
Hard to believe someone so full of life is no longer with us. Misty you are in my thoughts and prayers. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
I am so sorry to hear of Earl’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Shook family.
Grew up In Vibbard next to all the Shook family. Mother Margaret was a great cook. Sad he was taken young.
