Condolence & Memory Journal


For a couple of weeks I have had the feeling I should be in touch with her. We had become neglect in going to see her. Was going tomorrow [too late] to bring her chocolate covered cherries & "POOF" gone. Please don't ever wait. Tomorrow is not promised. Lovin' you Irene. So very sorry.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathies. Irene lived across the hall at Firehouse Block from my sister. She always praised me for all i do for Concord. She always had a smile and bragged about my city council for Ward 8 or as a State Rep. Never heard a bad word when we spoke. She will be missed.
