Karen, Tom, Bill & Rick, Please know that Ike and I send our deepest sympathy to you all and to your families. It is never easy to lose those we love no matter their age. We are so thankful that we were able to get to know him [and your Mom] some and be a small part of his life. Death does not extinguish the light, rather it puts out the lamp because the dawn has come. Sending many hugs and lots of love. Ike & Linda
