My heart has a hole where I miss you but one day, it will be good as new. I loved you so much Rene. You were one of the best aunts and role models a girl could ask for. Save a place for me, you made it first. I will miss you until I see you. Love, Annette

I never had the pleasure of meeting Irene but I know she was a very special person to so many.
My dear friend Annette is her niece and she is heartbroken. She only has wonderful memories of her dear Aunt. Annette's entire family is very special and I am blessed to have them in my life. Deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved her, especially Annette, her sweet sister Pam and their amazing mother Betty.
My the Lord comfort you and bring peace and love to you.

I never met Irene, but I have met her sister Betty and niece Annette!! I can only imagine how great and sweet of a woman Irene was because Betty and Annette are two of the most kind and sweetest women that I have ever met. My condolences and prayers are with Irene's entire family. Much love !!

I met Irene while working for a local ophthalmologist years ago. Her and her husband were the sweetest and she was the most kindest and caring person you could ever meet. To Betty and the family, I am thinking and praying for you during this difficult time.
