|Let the memory of Irene be with us forever|
"2016 has been a crazy year with Presidental elections creating much division and animosity throughout the US. You would love to read Facebook and follow Jill and Cecilie 's families Abby is a cheerleader and still pitching softball. Miss you telling me all the family news."
"RIP, Aunt Irene, Uncle Billy, Uncle Elvie, Aunt Jeanette, & mother Beatrice. Love Bobby!"
"Well it's been two years today, Jeanette, your baby sister joined you this year. The family now thinks of all of you back together talking, laughing, and hugging one another once more. Trisha, Diane, and the cousins have discovered so many good things from our collective past. So many good things!!"
"Being neighbors, and going to the same church, created a close relationship with the Halliwill's. My Mom was close friends with Irene, and my brother, Roger, was close pals with John. I loved visiting Irene to see what she was sewing on, or what she was cooking. She was always busy doing something for her family. Being the only woman in the family created quite a challenge, but she was up for it. After our family moved away, I enjoyed stopping by to visit Irene. She was very special and will be missed by all. Well, she's in Heaven with my parents now, and I know she has a special place up there."
"I was eight years old when the Halliwill family moved in two doors from us. I was always so impressed by Irene because of her gentle ways, soft voice and sweet spirit. She was the consummate southern lady. Rick, I'm so sorry for your loss, but it's heaven's gain. I will always remember your mom. - Lisa Clark King"
"Rick, I was sorry to hear about your mom. I'm Nancy Clark Rock and as you remember we "grew up" two doors down from you. Your mom was a favorite of mine. She was a class act! I enjoyed talking with her a few times in recent years after my folks passed away in 2010. I'm glad she died peacefully and is now with her Lord, husband and sons."
"So very sorry,Rick to hear of your moms passing. My name is Norma Gonzalez-Jones. Your parents lived across the street from mine.I hadnt seen your mom for years. I went to the senior expo this year, she was sitting in her chair. I am not sure if she knew who I was but she made me feel like she did. I cried,she was a great lady!God Bless You ."
"We were sorry to hear about Irene's passing. I am Patricia Manning Nobles; my mother is Virginia Woodfin Manning. Mother is Irene's first cousin. Mother kept in contact with Irene for many years, but lost touch. Mother was very sad to hear about Irene. She sends her prayers to the Halliwill family. From - Patricia Nobles"
"Thank you Great Grandma, I will miss you. Gabe Halliwill
Thank you Irene for being a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother to my children and grandchildren. You were always a graceful and loving human being. You will be missed. Linda Halliwill"
"You taught me so much about life, Grandma! You showed me how to cook... no really cook! How to sew, although you did most the sewing! Most of all, just how to be a good person. You lived a long healthy life, and I am so happy that you are now able to be with Grandpa and Dad in heaven. Not too many have the opportunity to know their great grandchildren the way that you did and that they knew you, and for that they will be forever blessed. Your spirit will always be with us, and you will never be forgotten. Love you and miss you,
"Mom, you raised us right. Cornbread, black-eyed peas and greens ready for New Year's Day"
