I have had the honor and pleasure to work with Irma on her health for almost 20 years.  She always showed me her strength, perserverance, organization and kindness.  I thank her for this and pray for her heavenly peaceful rest after her long struggle against earthly sorrows.  I also thank her family for being a testament to the familial bonds and love that join us and lifted Irma up during her struggle.
