    I am so sad to hear of the passing of your Dad. We had some wonderful conversations about many things. And even more during and after Scott moved back. My heartfelt condolences on his passing to each of you, and your families.

  10. Our Sincere sympathy for Irvan’s family. We were great friends with Irvan during his time here in Okeechobee, Florida. Stopped by his house one year on our way to Florida from Logansport, Indiana. We tried to call him and keep in touch. We called today, and an operator said his phone had been disconnected, and we thought something may have happened, so we googled his obituary. Irvan was a fine gentleman, and he loved to dance❤ We enjoyed his company on many occasions during our time together. He is missed by many down here in Okee. We’d see him at church on Sunday, and he loved having breakfast at the Buckhead Moose on his way to church. We have many great memories. Prayers for our friend ♥️ and his family.
