My condolences to each and everyone that was touched by Eldons presence in this world. He was a good and willing servant. God has a special place in the Kingdom of Heaven for Eldon to be. Jimmy Ashe and Family

This truly is heart breaking for all of us who knew Eldon but especially his family. Eldon was such a wonderful person, always a smile on his face. He was our high school friend and always a joy to be around. When he came to our auction, he would always come up and say, hello. Heaven sure gained a wonderful person. We all should try and be as great an example of love for people and love of God as he was. He will be missed by so many people. We pray that the Lord will wrap His loving arms around all his family and hold them close during this sad time. Love to all his family.
