So sorry to hear about Imy, we were best friends as teenagers then grew apart only to find each other again when she worked with my husband at Quincy compressor. It was nice to have someone to share are old memories together. I know her one great love was for her family. God be with all of you and give you strength.

I am so sorry to hear of your Mom‘s passing, Jerry. I know she was a wonderful woman because she raised a son who was always there for his son’s first grade teacher. Thoughts and Prayers are with each of you.

Imy was the best person I've ever known. She was never negative about anything and she was always willing to help anyone in need. I called her "Saint Imy". She gave and gave and gave, never wanting or expecting anything in return. The world is a much lesser place without her in it. She was loved by all who knew her.
