We will miss Uncle Eldean and his big smile. He really seemed to enjoy life and his big family. My family always loved to visit Mignon and Eldean on the farm in Bassett. We loved seeing the animals, the bees, and especially loved the rides on the trailer pulled by the tractor. Eldean was a good man and he will be missed by all. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this time.
