    I am so sorry to hear about your father’s passing. The loss of a parent is never easy, especially one to whom you were so close. I know you there for him, and your mother, throughout his illness. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Esther and family,
    I just returned from Florida and got your phone message about Marvin. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. I tried to call you but was unable to leave a message. Marvin will be greatly missed by us all. He was a great nephew and friend to my father Hank and a very fine man. I was looking forward to being his neighbor in Boynton Beach where we just bought a home. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
    Love, Cousins Mary Ellen and Roger and family

  4. Nancy (Benjamin) Speary says:

    I worked at Beacon Funriture Company from the summer of 1968 untill I got married in 1969. I was only 18 years of age and right out of high school. I worked as a clerk/bookkeeper. During the time I worked for Marvin at the store, I was always impressed with his kindness, compassion and honesty. Although I was very young he always treated me as an adult and with respect. I have fond memories of working for the Isaccs family and whenever I would run into Marvin over the years he always remembered me and was so friendly and kind. My deepest condolences to Esther and all of the Issacs family.
    Fondly, Nancy (Benjamin) Speary
