Jaci and I were very sorry to read of Irene’s passing in the Toledo Blade. She was a great and kind lady, and we truly enjoyed meeting her and Eddy at the Lenten fish fries at OLPH Parish. She kiddingly referred to us as her “Fishy Friends”. We’ve kept in touch with her with holiday greetings and occasional phone calls. We will miss those times with her. Our deepest condolences to her siblings and their families.
