Sheila: So sorry to hear of Earl's death. I last visited with him at the Paper Industry Retired Executives luncheon a few month's ago. I first got to know Earl when he joined Midtec, and then through you, and our Kaukauna Rotary Club. Earl had a great "Technical Mind" and I always thoroughly enjoyed our Paper Industry discussions with him. We will all greatly miss him. My sincere condolences to you and your Family.
