We were fortunate to have been next door neighbors of John and Irene for nearly 25 years. You couldn't ask for better neighbors or nicer people. Irene had a great sense of humor and was very much a spiritual person of great faith. I'll never forget how she prayed for my great nephew who had come down with leukemia, and how she always asked about him. I give her much credit for his recovery. I'm sure she is enjoying her new home in heaven, and hopefully we will all join her there someday. Our deepest condolences to her wonderful family and her friends who will all miss her so much.
