My heart breaks for you all. As you already know, Iris Ann will be missed by many. I still have the blankets she made for both Audri and Carolina. They will forever hold a special place in this family. I’m sorry I can’t bring dad down for the service but we are thinking and praying for y’all through this journey.

All our love,
Jennifer, Jerome, Audrianna, Carolina, Magnolia, and Jackson Dowling
