I am so glad we are all a part of the family of God and that you are with our loving Savior. I have to keep reminding myself that He is taking wonderful care of you and even still He loves your family and will take sovereign care of them as well.

To Isaac's beloved family, We are so profoundly saddened by the loss of Isaac. This is so unlike him! He was the most responsible, trustworthy, conscientious, thoughtful and easy going guy. Isaac became our friend and touched our lives deeply. We will miss our lunches and hearing about Jenna, Cole and Lissy, always with a big smile. There is lasting beauty in his craftsmanship in our home and in our hearts. He was one in a million! May you have some comfort in knowing he is in a better place. Nancy, Peter and family

Isaac touched the hearts of our family during the brief time he worked for us this winter. He was an accomplished carpenter who took such pride in his work. We appreciated his meticulous attention to detail and he was a true pleasure to work with. He had a gentile, warm soul and quiet humor. We are so sad for the family. Our sincerest condolences. Peter, Nicole and Max
