Davis' written remarks:
Mr./Madame Speaker, I rise today to honor Earl and Doris Sorrells, a remarkable couple who dedicated their lives to bettering their community.
Earl passed away on January 2nd and was preceded in death by Doris last year, leaving a hole in the hearts of many. Since then, their beloved town of Raymond, Illinois has been a little less bright.
Almost everyone in town knew Earl. He ran a radio show that aired at 5:30 every morning dedicated to the latest in Illinois agriculture. Off the air, Earl worked hard as a small business owner.
I knew Earl and Doris for over twenty-five years. They are some of the most generous people I have ever met, giving back in every way they could; not only with their financial contributions, but with their time and talents, as well. There’s nothing that made them happier than their Raymond community – except maybe the St. Louis Cardinals.
Earl and Doris were very well-loved by myself and by everyone in Raymond. They are missed immensely.
