To Irene’s family,
I was very saddened to read of Irene’s passing. She was a very kind lady, she sat with my Aunt Shirley at the Renaissance Retirement on Tranquile Road in Kamloops. They would go for walks in the Extra Foods parking lot. They were table mates from December 2008 until May 2012 when my aunt had to be moved to an extended care. They are probably out for a Spring walk as I am typing I send my Deepest Regards Sharon
To Don and his Family,
It is with great sadness that I read of Irene’s passing. Victor, Mark and their Families join me in extending to you our deepest condolences. Our thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
Stop by next time you are in Kamloops Don
