To the Preston Family, my heartfelt condolences. My heart was truly saddened when I heard about Issac's passing. Issac was always a gentleman and always made reference to God whenever we saw each other. Issac will truly be missed.

Sorry for your loss praying for you Angie and MS Rita from Carlean Rice and family

So many good times. So many smiles shared. My favorite memory is when my dog died. Angie called him to see if animal control would come (my dog weighed 95 lbs)he said no, but if I needed him he would leave work and come to see what he could do. Just to help me. Simply a kind man. Bless you and thank you for sharing your family with me. Praising God with you for your release.
