I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to be one of Beach Grandma's friends. Every time Patrick took me to the beach through college and beyond, Irene would find the time and a reason to get me alone for a brief personal chat - asking me probing questions about the other "kids" Patrick brough along that day, asking what happened to whoever was not with us that day, and wanting to know what I think of the general state of "things". And always providing her own personal tips and advice on how to enjoy life. Thank you, Patrick, for sharing your wonderful Grandmother with me, I will never forget her! - Gwen.

Pat - such a beautiful photo of her!

You did a beautiful job of honoring 'Beach Gram' with this tribute.

Obviously, the love and care she radiated and taught you lives on with you and the rest of your family.
