Dear Family of Fern & Don Irwin,
I was out of town and very sorry to miss cerebrating with you, Fern's life here on Earth. I believe many have welcomed Fern and Don into Heaven. Praise God!
I will always remember and be thankful for Fern, who stayed at the hospital and cared for my mother Edwardine Miller, when she nearly died from an automobile accident. I pray for all of you who morn for Fern and Don, remember we will rejoice when we get to Heaven too!
