Your Mom was such an amazing lady full of generosity and courage, kindness and compassion. It was a joy to know her for many, many years through church activities. Although I won't be able to be at the Mass, I will be praying for her and for all of you. With much love,

Irene was an entusiastic supporter of the youth ministry actives in the parish. She would often attend and enjoy being present with the teens. She would often remind us that the youth are the future of the Church...."you are the Church" she would say. She inspired us to continue our good works and grateful for her presence to us. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant. We will all miss your presence at Mass.

Dear Lord, relying on your promises to us, I turn to you in trust that my mother is with you and that she is enjoying your loving embrace. You alone know how she loved the best she could and how she faithfully endured the struggles that she faced. You know the graces you gave her and you know the grace she was for her family and for so many. For all the ways she truly loved the way you loved her, please reward her, Lord. May she enjoy the communion of all her family and friends who are with you.
