Dear sweet friends and family our mom, Mrs. Iris Keinick ran into the arms of her saviour on Friday, December 17, 2021 at the age of 71 years. We swear we could almost hear Angels celebrating and welcoming her home. Oh what a big party they are having! Thank you for all your care, prayers and support. Keep praying for our dad, we are not saying anything to him at this time as we don’t want to compromise his recovery. No funeral arrangements for my mom have been scheduled at this time as we are hoping our dad will be able to say goodbye to the love of his life for 50 years. Thank You again for everything.
