Condolence & Memory Journal

I want the family to know that Iris and Paul had a great impact in our lives as our neighbors and friends when we moved into our Sterling Heights home. We were new homeowners and shortly after, new parents. Even with the age difference we could have easy conversation with both of them, and they were always loving and encouraging. When my children first learned to speak they knew Mr. Paul and Mrs. Iris. We became more than just casual over the fence neighbors and were invited as dinner guests. Iris was my support to help with a little one if I had an emergency. She felt comfortable enough to let some of the younger grandchildren come and play at my house. Iris and I could chat for hours and not run out of conversation. She and Paul are forever in our hearts and I look forward to seeing them again.
