Dear Paul and Family,
Irene and my mother, Lillian Mcleod, spent a lot of time together in Milford. It all began with the Canasta club and then on to the Milford Senior Center. Irene and Lillian came to visit us when we lived in Germany, and we drove to Czechoslovakia all together and had a wonderful time in Prague! Irene was so much fun, up for anything and very eager to practice her French whenever she had the chance on that vacation. She was in her early 80's on that trip but you'd never know it. I'm very sorry for your loss, I hope that she was still active and comfortable in these last years of her life.

Paul and Joan,

I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I will always remeber her at your beach cottage and the wonderful times our families had together there. She was a true and great friend to my mom and to many others as well. She will be sorely missed.
