    I worked with Ike many years at Post Offices in Raleigh. He was a great encourager to me when I first began as a Rural Sub. I lost touch once he retired. I pray he enjoyed many healthy years in his retirement. My sympathies to his family.

    I worked with Ike at the post office for more years than I can remember. He was a good decent honorable and honest man. I was blessed to have known him. My condolences to the family.
