PoemsAunt Irene was always loved to speak. I can remember at the family reunions she always loves to read a poem. I really enjoyed her poems because they would always fit the occasion. If it was a church event, Aunt Irene always would have a poem prepared. I often where should would get these poems from, because many of them I had never heard, then again she could have written them herself. I will miss you Aunt Irene. Love youGlenda
May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead. With love,Tonya (Wilbert's Daughter, MuDear-Eva Caldwell's grand-daughter)
