I was saddened to learn that Irene had passed away yesterday. She and Garnet and their parents were such wonderfully important people in my life. I had not seen Irene or Garnet in recent years, but I I can say that they always remained in my heart. I send my sincere condolences to Gale and Connie and their families. God be with you all at this difficult time.
