Dear Clayton, Kaleb and Elliot
WE share you sense of loss. Irene was an amazing woman who overcame one obstacle after another and all with a smile on her face. She never gave up. She leaves a legacy of love, not just for you, her family, but for her God Jehovah. No doubt he was a source of her amazing strength. I know she shared with all of you her complete faith and trust in Jehovah's promise of the resurrection and I hope it is as much of a comfort to you as it is to me.
Sincere sympathy.

Clayton, Kaleb, Elliott and family:
We were very sorry to hear about Irene. She faced her health problems with grace and it was a joy to see her beautiful smile and hear her laugh, as she always did. Tammie will never forget how she liked to call her Pebbles (Flintstone :) Irene's faith in a resurrection, as found in the Bible at John 5:28,29, was strong and we hope to see her again in the future. Our heartfelt condolences,
Kelly and Tammie Hart

Remembering family visits, the BBQ on your back porch when it was pouring rain, your laugh, your support and caring about Dad Orge when he was in hospice, -- you were much loved, Irene, and you will not be forgotten . May heart goes out to your sons and Clay. Love Linda Allan (nee Orge)
