So sorry to hear about Aunt Irene's passing. We can only believe she is in heaven now with her mother, father and sister resting in peace. We too will forever remember the Thanksgiving holidays our families shared. Those were the good old days when we had the 25 lb turkey, stuffed ham and all the trimmings. The football games got loud but were always fun watching together. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers as they were and always will be. Love from all of us.

Mrs. Berry ( Irene ) was a very sweet lady when I was growing up in Suitland, Md. She was the first person to turn me onto The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Middle Earth in the late '60's. A good person and loving Mother thru and thru. It's been 50 years since I've seen or spoken to her, but I have great memories of her and hanging out with the family. I have been in contact with her daughter Leslie through Facebook. Goodnight Irene Goodnight.........R I P

What a beautiful picture, of a beautiful woman! I remember all the times I used to brush that hair. Special times spent with my "second Mom".

You will be missed, And always loved.
