Earl was my boss for a few years at Deutsch. He taught me a lot about people and a lot about myself. I remember him kidding around with us- his joking brought me to the point of tears at times! He showed me how to sell luggage and do monograms-I got quite good at both! I never have or will forget his and Mrs. Deutsch's kindness to me.

I am so sorry for this tremendous loss to the Deutsch family. May Earl's memory be a blessing. I am additionally sorry that neither Trish nor I were able to make the funeral and I are unable to make it to the shiva due to a series of unfortunate circumstances. Please know that Earl is honored in our memory and that you are all in our thoughts.
