Mamaw Irene will be greatly missed. I have so many memories of spending time with her when I was very young. I remember when she used to work for Cats medical transportation and would take me for my hearing aid appointments. She was a trip and so funny. She loved her babies and grandbabies so much. She gave the best hugs. I could call her anytime back in my teens and she would give me great advice and always tell me she was going to pray about whatever was troubling me. I know that we were never truly close but I knew if I needed her she would have been there. Love you Mamaw IRene and am going to miss you.
