So sorry for your loss. We have many fond memories of visiting Aunt Irene. We've enjoyed her Christmas letters every year which showed her love of nature and Nebraska. She was a quilt artist! What beauty she created! Sending all our love and prayers to the family.
Love, Bob and Sue
Our sympathy to your family. As Bob says, your Christmas letter was enjoyed here in our home as well. We are blessed also with fond memories of our visit with Aunt Irene in the Nursing Home. We loved sharing our WI cheese with her.. She made us laugh...May we all embrace life as she did: loving nature, her Creator, family, and friends.
Blessings, sympathy, and love,
Don and Linda Hohneke
Dear Linda and family,
Thinking of you and remember meeting your mom while visiting my parents at Elms Haven. She could be so funny. Am sure my mom was there to greet her. Love and hugs.
My sincere sympathy to all of Irene's family. I so enjoyed her when she was at the Embers, and I have a couple of African Violets that she shared with me. She always appreciated everyone around her.
