      Your father was a very special man. I remember him always having a smile on his face and such a casual yet friendly demeanor. He was a gentle soul that brought light to everyone he met. When I worked in the casino he always knew how to cheer me up when I was having a rough day. I will truly miss him.

  6. That is like the saddest obituary I’ve ever read.

    Uncle Milton (Earl )
    We conversed several times before your arrival to Colorado for the funeral of your brother Raymond.
    We never imagined that our final goodbye was for you also. We (your nieces and nephews) have nothing but admiration for you. With all of life’s challenges that altered your life you never seem to let it alter you spirit. You were a blessed example of what it meant to rise above your circumstances. Even after driving over 800 miles to Colorado that week you apologize to your nieces and nephews because you had to sit and rest for a moment but you yet had a smile. Uncle Milton you left memorable conversation for years to come. As you were transitioning in the hospital you spoke of your mother and even singing the full version of Glen Campbell’s song”Like a rhinestone cowboy”. That was priceless! Uncle Milton Earl you have ran your race, you have finished your course and now you are at rest.
    Thank God for giving you to this family for 80 years.
    We will take care of your 3 sisters “the golden girls”
    Rest In Paradise.
    Your nieces and nephews

    Will miss you Mr. Earl Coles,
    Seen you at Walmart many times, you would come into my work, and no matter what a smile =)
    I agree with you Sharron Neider, the smile on Earl’s Face is one of the many things I will miss. Thank you for expressing the happy side, even thought there were some tough times you had. I want to learn from you, and take that with me, RIP sir.
