My condolences goes out to the family of miss Irish Wright-samuels (Grandma)
I met grandma in 1984.
I was introduced to her by her wonderful daughter Monica. We were all living on Decarie in st. Laurent. My son was 3months at the time & right away i knew I found the right person to take care of my son while I went back to work. She took good care of him as she did with Aaron & Lisa. God bless her soul, we all loved you grandma.
Rest in the arms of your saviour.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs Samuel's a few years ago when Sonia visited me at work and she was with her.

She was a beautiful person inside and out. Her smile lit up the place and her gentle demeanor made me feel so comfortable in her presence.
She was also a stylish and elegant dresser always looking good in the photos Sonia shared with me

Rest well Miss Iris!

My sincere condolence to Sonia and family.

I met Mom a few times at center stage in Jamaica, a very warm soul. She is now resting in the arms of her Saviour, and for this reason, you as her children must be comforted and live your lives to meet her one day. Sleep in sweet peace Mom.

God gives life and he takes it away he's the potter and we are the clay,with this been said I wish to give my deepest condolences to Joan ,Vinc and the rest of the families. I had the opportunity to serve ms Iris at my restaurant for the first time when Joan and the family took her to celebrate her 95th birthday, ms iris had an infectious smile that would melt anyone that comes in contact with her, she loved my shrimp platter and cow heel soup,in her latter days Joan and vinc had to make sure they come for her soup on a weekly basis, when she was in the LaSalle hospital I had to make her porridge every morning,her beautiful daughter Joan made sure she was well fed and every evening she would drove from the west island to LaSalle to feed her mom soup,I admire the way Joan and her family took care of her mom with so much passion, with all this been said may her sweet soul rest in perfect peace,sleep well ms iris,Patricia, cuisine et traiteur vicky.

Words are few thoughts are deep memories of you will always keep.

Mama Iris I considered myself blessed to have known you.

I was always waiting anxiously to see you when you visit. I looked forward to doing your nails and having our little continuous councle sessions. Your infectious laugh kept me going even when you were away.

I will miss you Mama Iris each and every day but I will take comfort knowing that you are with the father, watching over us and guiding our way.

Love Simone

Thank you for the ageless experience grandma! Three south of a hundred. WOW. You live for eternity within my heart.

Since energy cannot be created nor destroyed, I know you are elsewhere reading this, will always be watching over, and sharing new insights that will help us to navigate our vehicle.

Patient, poignant, strong, are a few to write at the least which fits your character. Truly truly I am more than blessed to be a descendant of yours.

Dear grandma Iris, let not your light fade from sight and your energy from the remaining senses.

Love you,
Your grandson,

God saw you getting tired,
So, He put his arms around you
And whispered "come to Me"

With tearful eyes
We watched you
As you slowly slipped away
We couldn't make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped
Your tired hands put to rest.
God break our hearts to prove us
He only takes the best....
