My sincere sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2. Again my deepest sympathy.

I always loved saying hello to Irene on Sunday mornings and passing the peace with her. She will be missed by all who knew her at St. Andrew's church in Des Moines and beyond.
