Dear Irwin boys and family,
While we are sad that your mother has passed on. At the same time, we are glad that she had such a long life. We have had great admiration for her hard work and her love of family. You should be proud of yourselves for making your mother happy about her family. The world would be so much better with more caring people like Fannie. God's blessings and best wishes to you. (Your Aunt Berniece & Uncle George were our aunt and uncle, too)
