"We are sorry to hear of Alice's passing & also of Eldon back in April 2020. Tracy & I rode our Gold Wing motorcycle with them in the club from here in Marion back in the days. We went to alot of places with them & enjoyed their company. One time we went to visit them at their home and we couldn't believe the collections they had of things. Our thoughts & prayers are with the families. Tracy & Rhonda Emmons"

"Alice and Eldon were long time Hallmark shoppers so I got to know them very well, they were always looking for the newest Beanie Babies and Boyds Bears. Eldon was always talking about his matchbox type car collections. I still have the honeysuckle bush they gave me years ago as a start off of theirs . My life was very blessed to know such special people. Cathy Webb Shaw"
