Roz Fradin - 17 days ago

Dear Bonnie, Melissa and Matthew and the entire Stern and Altro families, I knew Irene very well since we both taught in the same Kindergarten together. We had the best time and laughed and enjoyed every minute. It was a pleasure knowing her and being her friend for many years. We lost touch for awhile when she moved away from Montreal but we often talked about getting together again. I have wonderful memories of her and her sparkly personality and warm smile. May you all go from strength to strength at this most difficult time. I have photographs with her that I will treasure and always hold dear to me. My heartfelt condolences to the whole family. She was so proud of all of you!

Andee Shuster - 17 days ago

Dear Bonnie, Dave, Matt, Melissa, and Families, I'm so sad to read this news. Irene was a warm and classy lady, as I recall from only brief encounters, but she stood out from the crowd. I will never forget the wise advice she gave to Matt when you guys moved back from Florida and had to establish new social circles in new schools. "Just be nice to everyone" and I believe that she was. May you find comfort in the fond memories of Irene and may she live on through the stories you'll share with your children and future generations. My deepest condolences on your loss.
