|I am so sorry to hear of Irene's passing. It was so much fun when she would come to the Van Winkle reunions. Mom (Theda) was always close to Irene. I know she will certainly be missed. Fred was also a good friend of Mom and Dad's. As a Veteran, he and Dad has a lot in common. So again, I am sorry to hear this, but the Lord always is with us and knows best. Keeping the family in my prayers.|
