    Dearest Colin, Mom and Uncle Ernie,
    It was with great sadness that we heard of Auntie Ilene’s passing.
    Auntie Ilene truly was a remarkable woman.
    A woman of style and grace and amazing artistic talent.
    She loved to laugh and lit up a room or place just by being there.
    Let us not forget her love of bling and sparkle!
    She will always be loved, remembered and missed by everyone whose life she touched.
    Carolin and Malcolm Crofts
    and Family
