Grandma Irene crawled into our hearts very easily. Like a missing part of a puzzle. Our children are privileged to have had her in their lives. Our many talks & hugs & visits will be remembered always. God made angels to walk among us, and our little family of 5 believe to the fullest she was one of our's. We love you always Grandma Irene. Danica, Melayna & Liam fully understand that you are looking after them & like Melayna says: "Grandma Irene went upstairs with God, & Jesus & Mary". All our love, hugs & prayers of comfort go out to you Deb & all her amazing friends & family. Fly high Grandma Irene
