    My thoughts and prayers go out to Irene's family. I knew Irene when she lived in same condo as I do. She was a lovely woman and was fortunate to have a loving son, Bob, who cared for her for many years.

    Irene was very special to me and vice versa. You may have heard about how she took care of me eating, sleeping, dressing, from my earliest days. In the past days I have been remembering her life and her many accomplishments. and the trips we took together after her retirement. I am so glad I got to see her in March. We talked about some family pictures, enjoyed some pasties, and unpacked a few birthday presents. It was a nice good-bye. thanks to Bob Linda
