Condolence & Memory Journal

As I read the obituary for Mr. Rosas, I was truly impressed by the outstanding and full life he lived. Never-the-less, 74 years of life is still much too short. How thankful we are that our grand Creator, Jehovah plans to restore his original purpose and make it possible for all mankind (including our loved ones we have lost in death) to live forever under perfect conditions. (Matthew 6:10; Job 14:14 & 15). Please accept our condolences as you deal with the loss of Mr. Rosas and contemplate the hope of seeing him once again.

Izzy was a great man who will be missed by all the lives he touched. He never missed any of my sporting events and was always there for advice and to make me laugh. I am a better man today because of Izzy. His family is in my thoughts.
