Iris, you were a precious big sister to me. I cherish all the times that you took care of me. You treated me like one of your own kids. I know you are in a far better place and now are rejoicing with Mom and the rest of the family that were there to welcome you home. We loved you so very much.

Iris was a wonderful person. She was a hoot to be around.
She could brighten up a whole roomful of people
with her humorous quips and fun loving attitude.
I grieve with family and friends for our loss, but
rejoice with her that she has crossed over to her
brand new heavenly home! Iris, know that you are
