Good night dear Irene! What a very special caring person you were! I do not say goodbye to you, I say good night & see you later! Heaven has you now and there is no more pain, only joy & happiness! You have joined the love of your life Steve! I will never forget how you cared for my Rick during our illnesses when he was still with us! He’s in heaven too! You will be remembered as God’s gift to us at a time when we really needed the help and you really cared! May God give comfort to Irene’s family at this time and in the days & years ahead! Irene will not be forgotten!
With love, thoughts & prayers,
