Eldon & Marcia were fun and great influences on many of us in MYF. Good memories! My deepest sympathy to Diana, Mary Kay, Ernie, and Jim. May God continue to wrap His comforting arms around each of you.

I'm so sorry to hear of this. I have wonderful memories of Marcia and Eldon leading our MYF group. Meetings at their home, doing screen-printing in their garage, etc. May your family find peace at this difficult time.
