    Irene, I remember your mother when she bowled on a league at Town Line, back in the 90’s. I never met anyone that was enjoyed life as much as she did. She was amazing. Please accept my deepest condolences on her passing and may she RIP.

    My condolences to you Irene. May the Lord give you the peace, for I know it would have been a true blessing for you personally if you had contacted her family. Division is not what Our Father in heaven wanted. I’m sorry that We her family, sister Roberta, neice Carole, and the rest had to find out by social media….
    We have forgiven. My prayer for you Irene? Is peace on you and to reach out for the Love of God who loves you and hears and feels your painful loss.
    May your mother rest in peace, for I know her life was of restlessness due to her walk here on earth.
