Mary, Since we got the news of your father's passing, you have been in the Earle family's thoughts and prayers. I never met your father, but if I had the opportunity, I would let him know what a fantastic person you are. He raised you right. In my 25 years of service I have never meet a more loyal and devoted perfessional. You are an inspiration to all who meet you. Stay strong and know that you and your family are in our prayers.

Dear Mary, I was saddened to learn of your father's death when you called me on Friday. I know it was somewhat expected, but nonetheless it still had to be hard and I wanted you to know how sorry I am and wanted to offer my condolences. There is obviously no good time or way for someone whom you care about to die, and I am only relieved that your Dad passed away peacefully, hopefully lessening the pain for yourself and your family. Although I never met your father, I know he was a strong influence in your life. Through your stories of his frugality, his love of gardening, and his life in Wisconsin, I feel I knew him just a little. I also know his absence will be felt by many people in his small community. When my father died, it gave me a good feeling to talk with people about him. I would enjoy hearing more about your father and his life if you would like to share memories the next time we get together. In the meantime, I will be thinking of you, Max, and your family there in Wisconsin. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. With deep sympathy, Mike Greenwood

Dear Van Hoof family, This is LT Jeff Dennison sending you a quick note from Baghdad, Iraq. I work with Mary at NWS Earle. I am very sorry to hear about your loss. It is the WWII vets like Mr. Van Hoof that inspired me to join the Navy. Our nation is a better place for what he did to serve his country in the World's most powerful Navy. Our nation has lost a hero! My prayers and thoughts are with the entire Van Hoof family. With the greatest amount of respect, LT Jeff Dennison United States Navy Baghdad, Iraq Fellow Wisconsinite!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

As a coworker and friend of Joe's Daughter, Mary Borree, my condolences to you, Mary, your Mom, and all of the family. It is obvious from reading the obituary Joe was quite a man. Thank you for his service as a member of the Greatest Generation. Mary, you have made him proud, to be sure. Rest in Peace, and all the best to you.
