Jason Ike Back


     This is my friend. “His mouth is most sweet; yea, he
is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my
friend.”
Ikey’s friends are everywhere.
     He showed himself friendly, and it shows, not
only with his peers, but also with the old and young.
Ikey was born on October 29, 1971 into the home of Ronnie and
Hester Back. He passed from this life on April 20, 2005, making his
life on earth 33 years, 5 months and 22 days. As a young man he
loved and married Shirley Fields. He loved her and he was the love
of her life. To this union was born one son, Andrew Walker Back,
and two daughters, Sydney Blair Back and Allison Daryl Back.
Ikey and Shirley were almost lifetime sweethearts. They were
never more close than the last days of his life.
     Ikey was a kind and loving young man. He loved the outdoors.
He loved his friends and he loved sports.
Byron was Ikey’s best friend and Ikey was Byron’s best friend.
He had a special place in his heart for Lillie and Hattie and I D and
Ina Rose.
     In addition to Ronnie, Hester, Byron and his wife, Kristi, and
niece, Morgan Taylor Back, Ikey is survived by a multitude of aunts,
uncles, cousins, friends, schoolmates, and fellow workers. When has
it ever been that so many hearts are broken? But none have lost so
much as Allison, Andrew, Sydney and Shirley.
     There’s a lovely spot not far away where peace abounds. There
are flowers blooming there. The trees have answered the call of the
master. That place is sad and lonely to us, but the birds sing there all
the time. Someday, it may be soon, “the Lord himself shall descend
from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with
the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we
which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with
the Lord.” Awake and sing.
