Isaac was my first friend. He was my first best friend. His phone number was the first phone number I memorized. His house was home to my first sleepover. He was the first friend with a Nintendo. I remember the layout of his house, the smell of their swimming pool, and the sound of his mom's voice telling us to, "go to sleep!" I remember riding with Isaac and Logan to buy fireworks for the first time. And...I'm pretty sure I tried "squeeze-it" at his house for the first time. It was definitely gross!
Isaac was the first friend on the scene when my dad passed 26 years ago. He stuck around - all the time - and made sure I felt cared for at all hours. He drove me to my dad's graveside service, and, when we seemed to be running late, he tore through the cemetery drive at top speed to get me where I needed to be on time.
I lost touch with Isaac maybe two decades ago, but the Isaac I lost touch with had the biggest heart, the fiercest loyalty, and the ability to make me feel at home - at any cost.
I am so incredibly sad to hear of his passing. My heart is broken that the world lost a special person.
Sending much love to his family.
