My prayers and condolences for the family! I am praying that this is my dearest friend whom I so loved that graduated with me in 1966 at Northeast High School. She named her first daughter after me Theresa. I have lost touch with her but have always thought of her! If she is this good friend, I wish her every happiness with our dear Lord! RIP Irene! I love and miss you, my dearest friend!! Love you always, Flo
