I have fond memories of Irene she would drive up with her fishing gear. She would sit and fish at the bayou side I walked over to talk to her we would just share a lot of things in life mostly small stuff. She didn’t come nearly as much since the casinos start but it’s okay she was doing what she loved. She will be missed but thanks Irene you for your kind heart being you played a role in keeping me close to family.
