Sandy,Toni,Christine and Brandy sorry to here about Uncle Ike I had a lot of wonderful memories of him and your family during the years. I will never forget him coaching me in Softball and all the
all of the games and tournaments we went too. And the times we came over and went swimming during the summer. He was a man that those who knew him loved him and respected him for who he was. Fly high with the Angels Uncle Ike.

Sandy, no words can describe he pain and sorrow of your loss. Your love for Ike is surpassed only by your dedication to taking care of him. We will all miss him, but I know that he is with family and friends who have preceded him to be with the Lord. May the Love and Peace of the Lord's blessings be upon you, always.
