  1. My heart goes out to your family. I am sorry for your loss. The time will come when”No one will say I am sick”, and God is going to”swallow up death forever”.
    Isaiah 33:24; 25:8

  2. I will miss you Irene. You were a wonderful aunt and like a second mother to us girls. I love you and look forward to the day when we will never be separated again. We will be rejoicing in Heaven together with Mama, Daddy and Uncle Bo. I’m sorry I can’t come to your funeral but God had other plans for me. I can hear you now telling me to go do God’s work. I know you forgive me. You are in the arms of Jesus and with Mama and Uncle Bo again so I know you’re happy. You’ve been here for so long it will be hard to think of you gone. You’ve always been there! It will take some adjusting. So glad I got to spend your last day with you. I will always cherish that day! I love you. Now go rest in Heaven! XO Can’t go without giving you another kiss and hug!

    My mama’s twin sister. Aunt Irene was always a cheerful and loving aunt and always needed a hug every time we were together.
    I know for sure she is up in heaven right now united with her twin sister (my mama) who left when she was just 36 years old.
    Along with her loving husband Francis Earl (Uncle Bo) Carver who also left us way too soon. But they are all now in the embrace
    of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to joining them when the time comes.
    Love you Aunt Irene enjoy he Angel Choir! Your Loving Nephew David Bell
