My sympathy to all of you. I spent a lot of weekends at the Eaton ranch when I was young. Jon and Darryle were always warm and welcoming. I have fond memories of the fresh “country” breakfasts and swimming in the pool. May your memories offer you comfort at this time.

Dear Darryle and family,

Jon was such a big man in so many ways. Just a few weeks ago me were talking about memories of corn roasts, bacon and egg breakfasts at church, and Santa Claus. His big booming voice and abundant generosity were good examples to us all. We will all miss him dearly.
