Dear Renee, Jackie, Suzie and Aldona,
Please accept my condolences on Irene's passing. I'll always remember going to your house and playing with you all. Those were very good times. Your mom was always nice to me. She was full of life and had a great smile as I remember. She used to call me "little Mamie." I hope your good memories of her and the good times you shared will bring you peace and comfort at this difficult time. Peace be with you.

Renee and family,
You shared wonderful and heartfelt memories of our parents. I also send sincere condolences and cherish special memories of your beautiful mother. Irene got me my first real job at the Teepee restaurant. I started as a busgirl and grew from that job to waitress.
Irene showed me all the ropes, drove me there and back and was kind all the time. She was a pro at her job. I always looked up to her. Now she is at peace with your Dad and the heavenly neighborhood is full of laughter from the Damphiers and the Murphys.
Love to you and your sisters and families,
Jean Murphy Allen
