My favorite memory of my cousin, Isaac, is going to my grandmother's (Sarah Gladney) house and seeing his motor home parked under the hugh oak tree near her car shed. We would share memories of our family history. I enjoyed seeing him and Terry and Sarah Lee at the family reunions. My one regret is missing out on his dressing that I didn't know he could make. I'm thankful that we shared a love for our family and a love for each other. Sarah and Isaac always made me feel like family. I will miss him. Thanks for the memories. Until we meet again.
