I'm sure I write for all of the Isaacsons in saying our thoughts and prayers go out to the Gambles. We remember fondly all the EJ & E stories and the get-togethers that the husbands, wives and children enjoyed together. Joe & Rosalie remain in their Miller home but send their condolences to Florida. Janice (Isaacson) Cook

I never really new Bill, but he worked with my grandpa, Joe Isaacson at EJ&J and was long time friends with both my grandparents. I remember hearing stories about him. A few years ago, I was standing in the check out line at Publix and noticed a gentleman wearing a EJ&J jacket and I said, "I bet you know my grandpa!" Turns out it was Bill, and it was so nice to have finally met him! I live in Seminole, and took comfort in knowing a good friend of my grandparents lived down the street. He will be missed. I'm sorry for the loss, he was a sweetheart.
