Love and prayers for all of you. Ma was one of the best neighbors we ever had. Eight wonderful memorable years living side by side ,children playing all over Sunset Park together (of course the boys remember the chocolate fudge and peanut BRUTTLE she made). Gene, we cannot forget the oyster roast in the back yard! Just a few of the precious times we hold dear to our hearts. We send you our deepest sincere sympathy and all our LOVE.
The Arkansas Johnsons.

This is from Aunt Margaret’s visit to the farm 3 years ago. While she’s going to be missed, I know she’s in a better place. We are blessed to have her as one of our guardian angels watching over us. We love you Aunt Margaret. ❤️

Every time I saw Aunt Margaret she would have a smile on her face and kind words.

I grew up just down the street from the Eason family and was good friends with Becky. Mrs. Eason was a really nice woman and good to all of the kids in the neighborhood group. She kept a watchful eye on us especially when we started driving and passing by the famous yield sign at the corner, When we got older , her care and concerns never stopped for any of us. Few people know this but she spoke with me one day while I was "training" to get in shape while in the Law Enforcement Training Academy . She laughed with me that day and encouraged me to keep pushing and make it happen! It's a little thing to some, but huge in my book. The kids in our neighborhood were blessed with gteat parents like Mrs. Eason keeping up with us . I'm very sad to hear of her passing. My families prayers and thoughts are with The Eason family. I have no doubt heaven has gained a wonderful angel to continue to look down upon us all. God Bless
