Tatum, I hope you know how effortlessly funny you were, how bravely honest you were, how beautifully you cared for your little brother. I hope you know you were sharply intelligent and more passionate than most. I remember meeting you at math & sciences camp in Ann Arbor and instantly connecting, laughing every day in Chemistry class and lunch until my stomach hurt. I remember you looking stunning at all 8 homecomings, bare-faced and beautiful. With a hunger to better the world and advocate for others' wellbeing and rights, you made so many lives better before you left - an ambition many of us speak of accomplishing decades down the road; an ambition you did not wait to achieve. And you did. I selfishly wish we had more time with you. Love you, Tatum.

Deepest condolences from the Doyne Botterman family. One of my favorite family vacations was the one where we visited the Ellison family in Idaho. Mr. Ellison took us rafting on a nearby river and taught us about how to know the age of a tree by counting the rings. I also remember a tire swing out in the woods- great fun. He will be deeply missed by all. Sending hugs and prayers.
Debbie Botterman Brighter ( Doyne's daughter)

I knew Ike for 35 years as his son in law. He was a kind soul and great story teller. If he asked you a question he wanted to know the answer, and he was full of great questions. His laugh was contagious and his smile genuine. He was an avid reader and learner who loved to teach others. Walk gently through the heavenly forrest Ike. You will be missed.
