I was a class mate of Irma's so I was doubly saddened by reading your father's obituary. I did not know that Irma had died. We lost touch after leaving Cranston West.
I hope that she did not suffer. I remember her as a quiet and intelligent girl. I did not know she had a brother. She spoke very little of things outside of school. She did once tell me that her parents were "doctors." It never occured to me that both were not medical drs.
I wish you and your family peace at this difficult time.

Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May God grant you the fortitude to bear the lost of your beloved dad.
