In Fondest Memory of David Isaac Valencia
THE KING AND EVER FAITHFUL IZZY
“Isaac’s unique optimistic personality had the ability to make one forget their troubles and laugh about any situation life served up. His compassion, willingness to help and give support to others made Isaac a true friend who’s laughter will leave a large void for those who knew him. Farewell my friend, here’s to you! Cheers with a final ROAR for the Lion who sleeps.” –Mary Alice and Bill
