Eldon meant more to us than he or his family will ever know. Larry (my hun) would hardly open up to anyone, but with Eldon he felt at ease and comfortable talking and being around him as I did also. Larry and I were blessed and thank God for bringing Eldon and his family into our life. Eldon will know first hand from Larry now they are in heaven. Eldon was one that shares what he has with others. His vegetable garden, beef jerky and the best barbecue around that he fixed. Larry might have ask him "did you bring some beef jerky or a slice of brisket with you." May God pour out his love, comfort, and peace on the family now and in the future. A family that prays together stays together as I felt and as Larry did with Eldon and his family. God be the glory for he is our keeper.
