From: Patsy and gregory hysell
Relation: Daughter

You are the most amazing mother one could ask for. You have given me and greg the greatest gift, the love of a mother. You became my husbands mom when he lost the only family he had left in this world, you became his mom. You became my mom when you never had to and I will always be your baby. May you rest now in eternal peace and our Lord will wait to welcome home. Be my strength and cont ue to guide Greg and I.

From: Sharon Mallon
Relation: She was my baby sitter

To the Samson Family: My sincerest of condolences on the passing of your loved one. She was a beautiful lady. Irene was my babysitter when I was a little girl growing up in St. Brides. Mom was a teacher and a Dad was a farmer, so they needed a trusted sitter. They thought the world of Irene. Although I was little at the time, I remember her well. She was very kind and extremely responsible. She was a beautiful person, and I can tell by reading her obituary that she led a full life, and leaves behind a remarkable legacy. Again, my deepest condolences. I will be praying for all of you during this difficult time.
