One of my favorite a uncles that I always looked up to. Uncle Eldon could teach you how to squeeze a dollar out of 3 quarters. When I would take mom (Virginia ) his sister to see them or we would be visiting at Anns, many times Eldon and myself would be talking about rental properties. Along with Gods guidance and those talks with Uncle Eldon helped me retire at an early age of 48. My degrees on my office wall couldn't teach me what he did. Kids just need to have more role models like Uncle Eldon.
My favorite memory was something he taught me as a child . This was something that I still do today. He showed me this great recipe, Sugar and Butter Bisquits. Simply take a hot biscuit cover it in butter then pour sugar on top of it. Then there you go instant / cheap desert.
I love and will miss you Uncle Eldon until we meet again in Heaven.
