The following poem seems appropriate for Earl DEIBERT who was a loving father and grandfather.
"Loving and kind in all his ways.
Upright and just to the end of his days.
Sincere and true in his
heart and mind.
A beautiful memory he left behind.
He had a nature you could not help loving;
A heart that was
purer than gold.
And to those who knew and loved him,
His memory will never grow cold."
