Add My Condolences

I am so sad for your loss. Irene was so courageous and strong and quite a character indeed. I was a neighbor and was able to check in with her and gossip and speak about health matters as well. May your memories of her sustain you during this very difficult time.

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful mother. She was always a kind, caring neighbor and a pleasure to talk with. I am happy she is at peace in heaven with your Dad and your sister. I know you will miss her terribly for there is no love like that of a mother. Love and prayers to all of you.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Irene. Irene and Bob were second grandparents to my son John when he was growing up. They both were so good to him. I also loved seeing Irene and her clan at Bingo. It was always a loud table :-)

I was saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing; she was a great friend and cousin to my Mom and our Dad’s had someone to commiserate with marrying into our crazy family. We’ll hold your family in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Kathleen & Pete
