    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Isaac. I will always have wonderful memories of him and all of the Tom Joseph family on Elm Street in Lockhart — as I am a part of the John Joseph family who lived right across the street on our beloved Elm Street. I still remember Isaac at ‘Aunt Mary’s and Sittee’s’ store, and him selling candy to me. I remember Isaac once “saving us from a snake” which was on our house. I remember him and Phillip and the fireworks they loved to set off. I remember Isaac as a kind and easy going soul who remained a constant friend all of these years to my Uncle Ferris Joseph.
    My condolences go out to Isaac’s entire family. I will always cherish the memories of our family’s connections of Elm Street.
    God Bless and Rest In Peace Isaac.

    I did not hear of Issac’s death until recently. I loved him so much! He and his family were so good to me and my family while we were in Lockhart. I remember the parties in Austin and getting to know all the family. I only wish I had known that he was sick……prayers to the family.
