Isaac Lee Ferguson - He was six years older than me and at age 6, that's a big difference. He had a horse. A big horse and one Sunday afternoon when we were visiting, he let me ride the horse. I didn't last long because the horse dropped his head to eat grass and I slid down his neck. Ike was there to catch me and later in school I would recount the adventurous event and spelled his name as "I Z Glee." Of course, time improved my spelling and it further developed the lore of Ike. He had a motorcycle and he played the guitar. What else could a young man want out of life?
Much later in life while I was in the Army Ike married Pat and had an instant family. He loved that family and they loved him back. I think that family was the focal point of his life, especially after Pat save him from an attacking bull. He was such a lovable and interesting person and his sly smile defined his face. He was a happy man who was loved, respected and will be remembered.

Jerry and I are so sorry about Ike, but know that he is not suffering anymore and he is that whole man that God created him to be. Hang on to the beautiful memories that you had with Ike, to bring you comfort during the coming days. Know that you, the family and all Ike's friends are in our thoughts and prayers.
