Aunt Iris you will be missed by many. Glad you are now with Uncle Gilbert. You had a wonderful positive outlook in life that carried you through even to the end. When we lived behind you as children it gave us such a wonderful opportunity to bond as cousins that persists through to today with our girl get- togethers. All my best wishes and condolences to the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. We have many happy memories with times we spent with Iris at Dave and Sherry’s. God be with you.
Lost of love.

Love and sympathy to you all – we can see that Iris was much loved and will be missed. We will raise a glass to Iris and Gilbert on the 7th and hope that the two of them will be doing the same!! I was one of the bridesmaids at your parents wedding and can still recall the day. Chris and David, I don’t know if you remember me, it was back in 1966-67 (a long time ago) when I lived in Toronto. Regards from your New Zealand cousins – Joan (Wright), husband John, daughter Sonia and son David.
