    It is with a heavy heart to learn that Ike has passed. We will miss him terribly on our little block as a friend and neighbor. The blessing is that he will be with his wife whom he missed terribly. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ike’s family –
    With Kindest Regards,

    Ike was a good friend for many years, and I will miss him. We shared many things. We were both retired naval officers, loved the Navy and the country. We would sit for hours and swap stories. We both loved dogs and regaled one another with tales of their antics. Good- bye, my friend. Fair winds and following seas. ??⚓️
