Dear Irene...I think of you so often and wanted to leave a message for you via the funeral home since we have not spoken in such a long time. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother, but I trust that she lived a full life. Perhaps you could email me when things settle down a bit. I would love to see you and hear all about you and your life. My very best to you...my heartfelt thoughts for you, your sister, and your family.

Words seem so inadequate to express my sorrow for your loss, Irene and Phyllis. Best wishes to you.
