    Iralean was a special lady in my life over the years. I’m thankful I knew her and got to hear her testimony of God’s grace in her life. I always enjoyed visiting her and hearing the stories she would tell. In her later years, I enjoyed her stories and songs even more. Heaven is sweeter today with Iralean there. I can only imagine her singing those songs she loved so much. May God bless your family. You are in my prayers.
