I am so sorry for your loss. Eldon was a wonderful person and will be sadly missed. I spent so much time with all of you when I was younger that you are all family to me. My heart breaks for what you are going through. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Adeline and family my condoences go out to all of you at this timeI I have fond memories of being at your farm as a kid. The one that comes to mind is when I was over on a Sunday afternoon after church and I saw the car you got for Valentine’s Day which had red interior. Also I remember playing teather ball with a racquet with your Krista. I’m sure that she won, since she was always a great athlete! I am pleased to say that my husband and son have gotten to know some of you as well through out the years and send their condolences as well! Eldon had a smile that would light up a room! As you all reflect on the memories that you all have together as a family, may it bring much comfort today and in the days to come! With love and prayers Garry, Kerry ( Barr) and Jude Johnston!

Dear Adeline,Krista,Tim and family
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Eldon, what a loving and generous person, always enjoyed the stories that Terry used to tell about his fun time at the farm. I will not be able to attend the funeral, I will be out of town. My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time. Eldon was a wonderful man that will be greatly missed.
Our heartfelt condolences to Adeline, Krista, Tim and families. Nancy and I will always remember Eldon as he was the reeve when they hired me as Clerk. I will miss him a lot.
To the Brown Family: Saddened by the news of Eldon’s homegoing. He was the big brother I never had as a child and my happiest memories of early childhood involved the farm and my adopted ‘big brother’ Eldon.
Eldon always amazed me with his memory of my youth and the adventures that accompanied our family and friendship. Will miss his infectious laugh and smile. My heart is joyful in reflection and warmed by remembering his contribution to my life.
God’s comfort be with you in the days ahead and be strengthened by our loving Heavenly Father.
Dear Adeline and family
I’ve only known him for 15 years but he’s been a wonderful example of a Godly man.
Remember,you haven’t “lost” him. He’s enjoying heaven and we’ll see him soon.
God bless and sustain you.
Dear Adeline, Krista, Tim and family:
My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. I was very blessed to have known Eldon growing up and seeing his unfailing faith in God and friendship shared with our family. My prayers are with you trusting that you will find peace in knowing he is with his heavenly father.

Dear Brown family, All of you have a special place in my memories of growing up with our fields touching each other. The story told often to me was that if not for Eldon I may still be crawling as he taught me how to walk using a rolled up newspaper with him on one end and me on the other. His love of his family, friends and his Savior were evident in everything he did. Thanks for the memories Eldon and may God’s loving arms surround all of you who grieve his passing.
Dear Adeline and Family, What a great testimony of service and Christian devotion Eldon showed by his life, family and community service. He is with Jesus now. May God comfort and be with you all.
Tim, Lynette, Krista, Pete and Families
