    We are so sorry to hear of your loss, especially during Christmas. It was always fun when Aunt Irish would come to play cards with mom, telling stories of when they were younger. She will truly be missed.

    Irish always had a smile for me and I will never forget her joy . She would blow me a kiss when I wheeled by her room each evening during my stay at Heritage Hall. I know her most of all through Bryant and Linda who were dedicated in their love to see about her . Sweet Irish has flown home but her love is still with yall. Much Love to all the family and her friends.
