  3. Ed and family. I was so sorry to see the notice about Irene in today’s paper. Even though I haven’t seen her in a few years, I remember her fondly. She was a kick! Loved life and lived it to the fullest. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Ed and Lori, I had hoped to meet you at the funeral but my husband is ill and I do
    not feel I can leave hin. Irene and I were friends in grammar school and
    high school and bridesmaids in each others weddings. I will truly miss her.

    The year we graduated in ’41 the Bickslers, and your parents, Ed, and Irene and I
    spent a week at Saratoga going to the races and having a great time.
    Memories are so important and I will cherish them.
    Irene often spoke of how wonderful you
    both were in looking after her. I know you will miss her .
    In loving memory,
    Doris Peet VanVechten
