Kim, Sending you all our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers. Our fondest memories of Aunt Iris are the times we spent for birthdays , Christmas and other holidays with her and Aunt Shirley at Family Palace Restaurant. Keith and my life were surely made richer by having Aunt Iris in it as was the world made better. She was such a loving and caring person and will be missed for so many reasons. She will live in Keith forever especially because she was the person who named him. Wonder if they are up in Heaven all playing Bingo now. Love you, Aunt Iris!
