    This is Bethanne again....Thank you for the thoughts but letting you know Dad passed away lastnight at 1:30 a.m.....he's been having more health issues then we were aware of. Mostly heart failure & kidney failure. All us kids & some grandkids were with him!! But once again Thank you all for being good friends with him. He really enjoyed this forum & his friends have shone him so much care & concern !! <3

    I posted my condolences in the good morning thread... maybe @Ken Anderson can put them all in one place as remembrance to Ike.

    Sticky it somewhere so it doesn't get lost...

    So saddened to hear that your dad has passed on, Bethanne, and now sending prayers for peace and God's comfort for you and the rest of @Ike Willis family.
    Even though our dear friend has gone on to be in Heaven with Jesus, he will always be a part of this forum in our memories. Your dad was one of the most unforgettable people, and we always looked forward to his stories.
    Even as we shed tears for him here, we know that Jesus is giving Ike a big "welcome home " hug.....

    I think @Terry Page could do a very nice photo as a tribute to Ike ...and we could all add our whatever we want to that....it would be nice to have it all in one place....I'm thinking Terry because he's good at making those type of graphics...

    Maybe @Ken Anderson can start an "in memory of" category....Ike was a big part of this forum and was around here a long time.

    Mine are in the Good Morning thread, too, and I like Chrissy's suggestion of moving them all here in one memorial thread, @Ken Anderson .
    We have a catagory for "people I have known, and it does not get a lot of use, so maybe that would be a good place to put the "in memory of" thread ?

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear about Ike's passing. He will be sorely missed. Once I get started downstairs, on my larger computer, I will set up a sub-forum for memorials.

    Ok, thanks Ken. No rush, I was just throwing it out there, mainly so that it's all in one place.

    Oh No, I'm just so upset to read that Ike has left this world ...what a lovely man, and although we'd never met, I felt like so many from his stories, that we knew him a little..like he was part of our family..Uncle Ike...and I'd read his stories out to my husband, who would every few days say...any more stories from uncle Ike lately?... He was just so entertaining, and a thoroughly good man..

    We will miss him so much on this forum....our sympathies and sorrow go out to you Bethanne, and your family. It must be so hard for you...God must have needed a good storyteller in heaven. R.I.P Ike, you will be sorely missed...

    Bethanne, how good of you to let us know......Ike was one of my best friends here on the forum. This came as a sudden shock as I logged in late today. I believe no one will mind if I offer all of our deepest respects in Ike's memory

    Hello Bethanne, I am so sorry to hear this:( Ike was very much loved here, he will be missed. I will always remember the wonderful stories he shared with us of his childhood. He was a regular on the Good Morning Thread if you might like to read some of his posts. He contributed to keeping my spirits up many times over.

    Here is the thread where I got to read a lot of his posts: http://www.seniorsonly.club/threads/the-good-morning-thread.731/page-250#post-154865

    Funny how you can truly come to care for people you've got to talk with online, but never met in person. Again, I will be missing him. Thank you sweetie for letting us all know,

    Denise
