To Isaac's family, my deepest condolences, I first met him at Native People's Parish in Toronto and was always impressed with his and Cookie's Love and Faith and I know he is with her now and smiling....his presence and hugs were awesome. His fluency in the language will be missed, He will never be forgotten may he rest in peace.

Keeping you all in our prayers. My first thought when I heard Isaac had passed was to phone my Mom. But then I remembered she was also gone and that she was probably there to welcome him home along with all the family. It's a sad time, to say goodbye. Our condolences to you all! Stay Strong.
