Irene was like a Grandma to me. I have nothing but fond memories of her. Making cookies, digging potatoes, flowers and eating her delicious food (I always say she was the only person that was a better cook than my mom). She was such a sweet spirit and Im so thankful for her influence in my and my family's lives. My thoughts are with Janet and Milt and family. Your parents were great people.
