My Story

Isaac lived an amazing life. He is one of the most fascinating people I have ever known. I met Isaac in 1982.
I met Isaac because I was married to his youngest brother for about 8 years.   Isaac  soon became one of my best friends.
After my divorce we stayed friends as I helped him with his relationship with his son. When I got re-married he became friends with my husband too who I have been with since 1993.
Isaac taught me more about life than anyone I know. Isaac had many dichotomies in his personality. It only served to make him more fascinating. He has certainly treated me better than most of the people I have gotten as close to as I have him.
Isaac called me by my child hood  nick name Pinky.

 Isaac  was a great and loyal  friend; he was the kind of friend that stands by you when you need somebody to be there. He once saved my life.  If it wasn’t for Isaac, I would have died right then and there. That was back in 1991.
Isaac also taught me about forgiveness. To let things go right away and not hold onto them. He was one of the most forgiving and loving people I have ever known.
He had a strong character. When we first met he said he thought I was a snob and a priss because I was  quiet. But we became close friends very soon and stayed close until his death.

As I grew older and my life experiences became more full he started affectionately calling me "Uptown Girl." Sometimes he would call my cellphone and I would be on vacation somewhere or one time in Hawaii. He would then call me Jennifer Hart from the T.V. show "Hart-to-Hart".
The last 8 years, my husband and I would take him to little getaways. He went with us to the Jersey Shore for seafood, Koreatown for BBQ, The Upper Eastside for dim-sum, and Chinatown for bubble tea. He even told me regarding  the bubble tea: "They don't serve this in prison!"

I was happy to share a part of my life with Isaac and he will forever be in my heart. I want to thank Miguel and Raoul for being his brothers and Melissa for being his  sister at the end and taking care of him.

What is it that we remember when we think of Isaac ? I think everyone who knows him very well would agree with me on this. It was his sense of humor. He was the kind of person that would make everyone laugh so hard that they’d end up crying. Just thinking about those  jokes and stories  still makes me laugh. He was so out there when he told  those jokes and stories. That is what I will truly miss about Isaac. He could make me laugh when I am really sad. He always cheered me up when he knew I just had a bad day. That’s the trademark of Isaac. He always wanted to make people happy. In  all of the years I knew him he never made me cry. Isaac had a great instinct about people. If Isaac did not trust someone I trusted his judgment and stayed away from them.

    I have realized that Isaac indeed lived his life fully. Isaac was well-loved and he had done so many things on earth and I’m sure he’ll do much more in heaven. I will forever be grateful to have known Isaac. I will forever be grateful that Isaac was there at the right place and at the right time to save my life. I will forever be grateful for spending  many years of my life with a friend like him. All the memories I have shared with him will forever be cherished and remembered. Isaac will forever live in my heart.

   Isaac is in heaven now and we are here on earth. This is not the time for us to grieve his death but it’s our time to celebrate his life. Don’t ever forget Isaac. He never wanted to see people cry. He wanted to make everyone happy. So at this moment when we are about to lay his body to rest, let’s all think back and remember how Isaac touched our lives. How he made us laugh and how good Isaac was as a person. This is not the moment for us to shed our tears but we should all be thankful that we were given the chance to have known a man named Isaac.

   Isaac will forever be missed but I know in the right time, I will meet Isaac again. We will all meet Isaac again and he’ll make us laugh in tears again. The name Isaac means laughter.
Isaac leaves behind a wonderful son and 4 grand daughters which he was able to meet and enjoy. He lived  a blessed and full life.
Isaac used to say to me often only the good die young.
I loved him very deeply but more importantly I knew he loved me.
