  1. Eight of us (4 couples) would get together every/or every other Saturday night to play Hearts. An, our children were involved in baseball/softball and that is how God Blessed me into becoming a lifelong friend of Bruce and Sherry Eaton. Once you know a person like Bruce, you never ever forget him. He truly leaves an ‘imprint on your heart.’
