My favorite memories of Iris are when we use to spend the day running errands and going to her dr. appointments. She would talk and laugh about everything. She would always want to spend money that she would have for our day out. She would laugh her sneaky laugh because she thought she got by with something hiding her money and bringing it... She thought nobody knew but I was pretty sure Danny and Tim knew about it. She really was sneaky. Lol.. She would tell the dr. what he wanted to hear and just grin. We always had fun. I'm sure anyone who knew her will miss her but I'm also sure that each of us will have a smile on our face when we think of her. I know I will...Wilma
