Darus and family: We are so sorry for your loss. Please know that if there is anything at all that we can do for you at this time of mouring or in the future, all you need to do is ask.
I noticed in the obit that your father's name was Isaac. My father's name was Isaac, also.  God bless.

Your friend, Randy and wife Judy

Family- I was sorry to hear of Aunt Maxine's passing. I was working today and unable to attend the service. As a child I used to enjoy going to Aunt Maxine's and Uncle Isaac's house to ride the rocking horse and watch my dad and Uncle Isaac play pool. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time.
