Sr. Irene and I met on our tour of Notre Dame High School. We were grouped together for that tour. Led by her sister Mary Ann. We bonded instantly. She was from St. Robert's and I was from St. John's. As providence would have it we were placed together in the same home room as freshmen. Our friendship was fixed from the very first day. After high school I went off to Temple Univ. and Irene began her progress toward her calling. She was at my wedding in March 1989 and Peter and I along with my parents were there in Maine when she took her vows. Our lives diverged but whenever we came back together it was as if no time or distance was between us. She was an honorary Aunt to my two children. She was a true and genuine friend. I am sad that we will never sit and visit one another again. I know that she is at peace. I thank God for bringing her into my life. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends today and always. Rest in peace my friend.
