Dear Mr. and Mrs. Stine,
I am sorry for the loss of your father - Daddy Irl.

I have loved the stories Rebecca has told us over the years and I enjoyed meeting Daddy Irl and Mama Dot a few years ago. You are all such a beautiful family.

May God's everlasting love comfort you now until you meet again.

Bless you

Lynn, Tommy and family..I am so sorry to hear of Irl's passing. I was so fortunate to know him through Civitan. He always had a word of kindness to say to me and I enjoyed his wonderful smile that always brightened up our lives. He will be missed, but I know one day we will be reunited in Christ Jesus our Lord. Renea Wall

Dr. Alexander and family, I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Irl's passing but I am also happy that he is with Ms Dorothy. When I think of them I always think of them together holding hands. I enjoyed all the time that I spent with Mr. Irl in Cardiac Rehab he was always a joy. God Bless You.

Dr Alexander,
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I really enjoyed working with Mr and Mrs Alexander on the carpet for the church several years ago and haven't forgotten how sincere he was and how much he loved his church. I know you will miss him tremendously and am praying that God will give you peace and comfort at this time.
