- I am sorry to hear of Aunt Irene's passing. I will remember her most by her smile and laughter. Some of my fondest childhood memories include the Easter egg and basket hunts the she organized for all the cousins on her farm.
- I sure will miss Irene my first cousin and dear friend.
I will be at the funeral.
