Although we only had the pleasure of being Irene's neighbor for two years we are honored to have gotten the opportunity to know her. She was the sweetest lady with the best personality. Sincere condolences to Don and family. ❤

I had the pleasure of meeting this kind lady when I played music with her son Donnie back in the eighties. She was a loving mom and grandmother and I will always remember her very calm demeanor and how much she cared for her son. We were all better off to have known her. There are parts of our lives that we would like to return to if we could and that is definitely one for me. She was a good woman and mom Donnie. She is where we all hope to end up.
Peace brother. Moe Bouley
