Condolence from Ike & Pepper Isaacs on October 23rd, 2015 11:26 AM

It is with sad hearts that Ike and I send our condolences to the Munden Family on the loss of a beloved husband and partner, father and grandfather. Reg was such a special person whom we held close to our hearts and will continue to remember him with love. He and Marg became Ike’s ‘special’ parents during the Military Service and the bond has never been broken. He also became an adopted ‘Indian’ brother to Reg and Marg’s children. When Ike and I married they accepted me into their fold immediately. He will be missed by many. When one leaves this earth for their home in heaven, try not to be sad that he is gone – but be glad that he was here.
He will forever be watching over you all.

With deepest sympathy and love to you all
