"Her voice will echo in memories you hold, Her smile will warm you through stories retold; Her love will touch you in spirit each day, Her life will be treasured in beautiful ways!" Irene has always had a special place in my heart. When I faced a very great loss, she showed up at my door to bring me comfort. Something I will never forget. She always had a package for each of my children for Christmas when we lived in Benton. Irene had a very caring heartI! I know that she is now in the presence of God, in the presence of absolute love. And my prayer is that this bring everyone who cherished Irene, great comfort. With Love, Coral and Sandy Stares
