Some 35 years ago when my parents moved next door to Johnny and Irene they were welcomed into the neighbour hood by this special couple. They were great neighbours and started a great friendship and shared many family stories from gardening, tree trimming, children and grandchildren. Friendship carried on well after Mom moved and Irene and her shared many phone calls to catch up. Irene was a special lady and thank you for your years of kindness. May you RIP ❤️ Sincerely, Patsy, Brenna and Brent Hambly
