Our love and prayers are being sent to the Eaton family!

"We are never ready to say goodbye forever,
Even though we know it is a part of life.
Hearts are heavy for losing you, but as we mourn
Your death, we also celebrate your life."

Uncle Neal may be gone, but he will never be forgotten. He is with us in spirit and in our hearts. The blessing he has left is his living legacy of Tim and Sharon and all the Eaton family.

So sorry. Neil and Laura were a special couple.
We met them in Canton Texas in 2001 at a Good Sam rally, went with them to Kansas and New Mexico to rally’s before returning home To Prince Edward Island Canada in May 2001. Shortly after they phoned and said they were driving up to see us.
They drove the 2500 hundred miles to our campground and visited with us for 2 weeks, what memories we have of them both.
They truly were special people who loved the Lord.
Rest In Peace.
Cherish your memories, God Bless.
