    We were blessed to have known Ivy and are especially grateful for his friendship. We have sweet memories of his visit to the cabin. We will miss hearing from him.

    Our deepest sympathy to all who loved him.

    Katy...We are so sorry for your loss. Grandpa was a special person and I know you will miss him dearly. You will see him some day. When you see him he will have that video recorder in his hand filming all the beauty of heaven!! Prayers and our thoughts are with you.
