DearAlice and family,

I was saddened to learn of your loss. Whenever I saw Ivan he had a warm and welcoming smile. I don't think I ever heard him complain about anything. We always exchanged news about our families. I admired his ability to rise above disability and live life fully.

My love and deepest sympathy,

My deepest sympathy to all your family. I remember Ivan coming to Sue's house when my kids were younger. He was always kind and quite humorous at times. He always had a smile on his face and I always admired his sweet personality with his disabilities. Praying for strength and comfort thru this difficult time. The Estes Family!

Ivan and Alice were a big part of my childhood memories. Daddy told endless stories about Ivan and all the things they did as children. When we came to Ohio, Ivan would tell his stories too. They were always good for a laugh. I cherish those memories. Daddy was blessed to grow up with Ivan in his life and so was I.
