I was sad to hear of the passing of my Auntie Irene. My sincerest condolences to Errol, Sharon and family for their loss. I will remember the good times, the laughter, songs and great family moments. She will be fondly remembered for her wonderful sense of humour and I hope the good memories make it easier for you as the days go by. Love to you all.
