Farewell Ike

Ike loved Brooklyn and Manhattan, though he said the people there were very corrupt at times.

When I met Ike over a year ago I did not realize that I was meeting a soul mate. He moved here on a second retirement after 20 happy years in Florida. An unmistakable thick Brooklyn accent, a non stop story teller, a true unique character with a genuine faith and a life time of hard work and faithfulness to his wife and daughters.

As we shared over the months after his cancer took over, we found so much in common, people, golf, New Orleans Jazz, and a serious desire to understand the ways of God with man. His months in hospice home care allowed us to share deeply and observe his family provide for his needs as suffering increased. What an amazing help a good hospice nurse can be. Thank you Heather for your strong care.

Esther is a strong woman who I pray will go on and find in Sun Lakes some of the joys they knew at the Villages in Florida.
