I would like to send my sympathy to Ivans family. I always enjoyed talking to him when he came into my Barber Shop! He had a great sense of humor that will be missed. He had the best stories and jokes. I will keep your family in my prayers.

My heart is breaking; deepest sympathy to everyone. Ivan was a life-long buddy, and I am proud to have shared in his life; the love we all shared in the Class of 56 is so deeply imbedded, we will all meet again to continue this adoration. Watch over all of us my Dear Dear Friend.
I am so unhappy I cannot be there, as I am in Mississippi at ths time, but thinking of everyone.
