Marie & Keith,

I met Ian many times while visiting you with Denise R. when you lived in the country. He was always so gracious to us, inviting us in and chatting with us. I know he helped you while you cared for Keith and lived with you for a time. I could tell he loved the dogs you had and his family. My heart goes out to you and Keith in the loss of your son. My prayers for comfort and peace are with you as you remember the joyous times you shared with him. May the God of Comfort bring you peace.

Marie and Keith,

I remember Ian and my youngest brother Chris being in scouts together (with Keith as scout leader), Ian was an animated kid and a loving son. I can imagine this is a very sad time for you both and our hearts go out to you from Seattle.

With love,

Jonathan Feifs
