My deepest condolence to the family. I remember Issa as a young man when he was working at Mikles in Bluefield.

Issa was always such wonderful face to see and a blessing to talk with. My deepest condolences to the family. Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
