My Mom, Lucile Miller, dearly loved you Irene. Irene shared our family birthdays, anniversaries, all kinds of family celebrations. Mom shared her deep love of God with Irene thru Rosedale Baptist Church. Mom joined Rosedale Baptist Church in 1951 and was VERY active until her death in 2013. She love all of her Golden Gems and their trips around the country; the evening prayer groups; Sunday School...... and she loved her special friends - Irene was VERY special to Mom. Irene, thank you for sharing your life with my Mom - you made her life have greater depth. I have no doubt she greeted you in heaven with a big hug!!
Our loss is Heavens gain.
