I first met Irene through her niece Toni Parise Liguori as she visited her aunt Irene. I thought then, what a nice person; she makes me feel so welcome and comfortable. And I think now, that these attributes were some of the hallmarks of Irene's life, a life of unselfishness, a life of giving and caring. My sincere sympathy to Irene's family.
