My loving beautiful friend who I met at C&C Bakery and was such a joy with her smile and her jokes. Our time spent with our horses to prepare them for the King Ranch Trail Ride when Jacob was a little boy. We unfortunately lost touch but she was always on my mind and in my heart. You will be missed Irma. My deepest condolences to her family.
