Please know that I am going to plant a tree in Israel in honor of Ian. Greg has one and so dows my dad. Such a lovely person. Such a wonderful kid. Such a go getter. So artistic and musical. Love you

Ian was a great friend to me, I live about a block up the street from his grandparents in Barnesville, Ohio. we worked together, hung out and played guitar together he had such an amazing talent on guitar and the piano. His musical ability was a huge inspiration to me, Ian made me happy just to be me. I will always remember him.
