  • Dennis,Vickie and family,
    Our hearts ache for you over the loss of your son. I feel for you at this time and I am devastated for you. Over the weeks following Isaac’s passing you will find yourself asking why and I believe you have that right. You will also not only be sad but at times mad but just look up to the Lord because he has your only answers.
    Always trust that God knows all and one day you will meet the Lord and will be able to ask the questions that you will need an answer too and be reunited with your sweet baby boy again. David has been gone for 25 years this past April and we talk about him everyday. Always share memories of Isaac with your family and keep him alive as much as possible that always helped us. Zack never met David but through all our sharing of his life he talks about him like he was raised with him. We will pray for you and your family. I will always be grateful to you for how you treated David and how good you were to Odell and Pauline. Thank you for just being you Vickie. I’ll always consider you a friend.
    Dallas, Leslie, Angela and Zack Ball
