I am truly saddened by Irma's death. Irma was more than just a friend; she was an amazing person. She was always so kind and considerate; I will miss her phone calls every Wednesday...she never missed a beat..even when I was away, she called my daughter to check in how I was doing or returning.

Her passing will not only leave a void in our lives, but in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Irma's memory will always remain deep within my heart.

My condolences to her children...her soul is at peace...
