Heaven received a special angel. Iva touched so so many people and had a heart of gold. Although holes in those hearts left behind, special memories will never be taken from us! As Iva would want, and won't accept any less, we will celebrate her life today, tomorrow and forever.

Blake & family,

Iva as you all know was a true fighter, stood strong on what she believed and was a vital part of our WW group called the Village! Even Grandma Fern spent some Saturdays mornings with us in workshop. She loved you all with her whole soul and when lil Jackson arrived was on Cloud 9, then Ms Hannah Rose! She loved being Meemaw to those babies!! And to her extended babies, her steps were just as loved by her! They gave her fighting power even as illness weaken her body! She & I had many a Starbuck Latte Grand when she was in Houston & shared great words of support & encouragement through life situations over past 7-8 years of my knowing her. Let her love carry each of you and be comforted knowing she has reunited with her Heavenly Family and we know exactly how her love will forever be with you all.....
