  2. Dear Edie, Gale and family,

    So sorry to hear of Aunt Irene’s passing. I have many fond memories of visits to her and Uncle Cliff’s farm as a child, and I will always be inspired by the fact that she found someone to love and marry at the age of 80. I am sorry I cannot attend her service and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers,

    Love Karolee
