Israel was by far a man of virtue and patience. One fond memory is golfing with val David Daniel and ray. I'm a horrible golfer and all day he tried to instill basic techniques in my game. Not once did he ever get frustrated or try to quit teaching me. I learned alot about being a man of patience that day. I will never forget him and all precious memories he has brought all of us.

Lord Jesus I know that You are close to those that are broken-hearted and grieving in their soul and that You rescue those that are crushed in spirit. Draw near to Your many children who are facing times of sadness and loss and draw each one ever closer into Your precious arms of love and support. Sending love and prayers to Laura and her family in this time of sorrow. Israel will forever live on through his kids and grandkids. Rest in Peace .
