Eldon was the valedictorian of my graduating class at GFA in Grand Falls in 1955 and he did a fine job of pulling us all back together for our 50th reunion in 2005. I saw him in 2017 when I passed through Gander and it was hoped that we would meet up again this coming August. Alas! It is not to be. I am so sorry, Margaret. Please accept my sincere and heartfelt sympathy.

Daphne & I were shocked to learn of Eldon's passing. Although our friendship was relatively brief, our times together were light and funny. We had a wonderful visit with him and Margaret at the hospital and came away thinking about our next trip to Gander when we could grow our relationship more for the long term. Sorry, Margaret, that we will not make it to the funeral. I did something to my back that will keep from taking long drives for a while. We pray that God will bless and strengthen you and all the family as you now begin the difficult process through grief and losss. - Ed & Daphne Noseworthy
