    I have so many good memories of Uncle Eldon going back to when I was a little girl. I am sorry for your loss.

    To Eldon’s wonderful family, We are down south for the winter, but wanted you to know how special both of your parents were to our family. We enjoyed trips to the casino. We had Eldon and Harry Weber cut cards to see who rode in the front with Steve first so they wouldn’t try to beat each other to the van. Card club was always fun. Eldon would pound the table and yell “you’re euchred”. When we had a western themed New Year’s Eve party, he and Harry raced thru the house riding the kids horses on a stick! We had to outlaw silly string too because of them. Always young at heart and full of fun. He was a wonderful friend and neighbor that we will always fondly remember. Steve, Marion, Aaron, Holly and Logan
