On this day, July 25, 1896 our Nana received a Christian Baptism at the mere age of 4 months and 17 days. And on this day, July 25, 2011 our sister Irene passed away. It is our belief that Nana knew she was not healthy and not living her life to the fullest and called her to be with her and our Mom, Dad and most recently her youngest daughter who passed this February. My day began with the phone call that Irene had passed early this morning and ended with me saying goodbye to her at the funeral home. Due to the lack of life insurance and funds, because she had been ill for so long it was decided that she would be cremated tomorrow, but our family was given time late this afternoon to say our goodbyes and send her on her way. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
