A Letter From Mrs. Ice


Hello everyone,

Thank You all for your thoughts and prayers through the last month. It has been a difficult. We are all hanging in there. We were able to share an incredible day on Saturday together. Dad had a party with the Angels. He was fishing, playing catch with his dog, talking to people, eating and drinking and even smoking a cigarette.(all air of course) He would interact with us and them. He was all smiles and seemed to be having a wonderful time. We will miss him so much but he is in a better place and God must have an awful big job for him to do to take him from us so soon. He had many things he wanted to do yet. He was in good spirits till the end and knew he was going on to bigger and better. So again Thank You for your thoughts and prayers. here is a copy of the Obituary or you can go to the funeral home web site to see it.
