Regret that I can not be present to celebrate her life with her family. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Family reunions have not been the same since Ireta has been unable to attend. I have no doubts that Ireta is in heaven and having a "reunion" with those who have gone ahead.

Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Ireta's home going, though I know she is in a better place. Since I am not in the area on regular basis, I was not to come pay my respect in person. I always enjoyed with for and with Ireta over the years. May God's peace and comfort be your in the days ahead.
