I remember the days with Sherry upon spending many weekends having fun sleeping overnight at your house and going to church with you, Sherry and grandma each Sunday morning. I admired you for that and ... yes, I always made Sherry say her prayers & hail Mary’s out loud for me before going to bed. Another memory Sherry and I would laugh and giggle about was your disagreements with grandma as you spoke in Slovak to each other but you both would swear in English...Yes, we were listening😂
May you rest in peace my Aunt Irene, say hello to our family in Heaven and give my sister Mickey a big hug 🤗 Your niece April 💜
