Just wanted to tell Earlene’s family how special she has been to us. We always looked forward to visiting with her when she would stop by or by phone. She was a beautiful sweet lady and we will certainly miss her. We have her old side saddle that we made into a bar stool in our kitchen that I sit on and think of her daily. Many prayers for you all.

She was a good friend I have known her for years. We where in the scurry county riding club together for many ears. I remember when my mom was alive she would ask us to go riding with her several time and my mom loved it. When I would see Earline she would always stop and talk with me. I will miss her. Prayer to all the family.

My heart is so sad of the loss of Earline! I just saw her 3 weeks ago at my husband's (James Claxton) funeral. We are family and I can't imagine her not being with us! What a great lady she was and she will be missed deeply! I pray God will hold you all in His arms and give you comfort and strength to go through this difficult time! Love to you all!!

Bobby Don & Sue ~ I am so saddened to hear of Earline's passing. She carried mail faithfully and built relationships along the way. May God grant you the peace that passes all understanding.

She was my son and daughter-in-law's mail carrier and they spoke very highly of her. My son notified me last night of her passing and said, "Mom I just spoke with her yesterday, I was outside and she pulled in my drive and gave me the mail." What a sweet memory.
