So sad to hear about Irene's passing!  I hadn't really seen her since high school but have fond memories of her from the good 'ol days and recently reconnected with her through FaceBook!  Got to go to the funeral home and meet her mother and brother and they were very gracious!  Rest in peace Irene.
