Irona will also know when she gets older what a wonderful person you was and how much you loved her and all of your granchildren. You definately are irreplaceable nobody in this world can ever replace you. She will know from myself and her brothers exactly what a wonderful woman you was and how much you would do for others and go without yourself. God has one of the very best angels now.
