With OUR Deepest Sympathy Michael and Family;
We were shocked to read this morning of Irene's passing. I've thought about her many times over these past years and remembered all the laughs, jokes and lunches we shared. I truly missed our friendship and I will never know why we drifted apart. She was such a beautiful lady. I'm just happy to know that she was part of our Brandy Tree life. She will always be remembered.

Dear Michael and family -
My heart is broken, Irene became part of my life first as a trusted sales rep then as a true friend.
For several years we enjoyed our Friday lunches always beginning with a martini,very dry of course !!!
Henry's was always Irene's first appointment Monday morning at The Toronto Gift Show.
In later years we cherished we our friendship highly and in the last eight months we talked daily,
sometimes twice a day. Irene I'm lost without our laughs and conversation about everything and anything.
Michael you would say to Irene, "its your sister calling". Rest in peace my beautiful, funny friend.
Please accept our very heartfelt condolences, Love, Carol and Bob Andrew.
