    Rest In Peace, Aunt Irene. I remember all the good times when you and Uncle Jim were on Governors Island. Carol Lynn, you are in my prayers.

    I know Aunt Irene is finally at peace, I want to wish peace for those left behind. Carol Lynn, Brittany, Cora, Oliver, James and Ron. My memories are of a much younger aunt. I remember a T- Bird, Aunt Irene's hair up in do rags. We had fun times at the beach when she asked for me to come and stay with her. I remember playing Connie Frances records on her Hi -FI (Where The Boys Are). Aunt Irene was a free spirit just like my Kimmie was. Now they can dance together. Our love goes to all and Aunt Libby too. Aunt Dora, Steve and Nancy

    Dear Carol....I am ever so sorry for the loss of your mom. Just happened to find her obituary. I have such wonderful memories of the time we shared together as Coast Guard wives and the years after, Hawaii and Governor's Island were extra special times of your dad also. I will miss the occasional phone calls but I will always treasure the wonderful friendship I had with a fantastic lady.
