We send our love and prayers to all the family. The Lord has called another angel home. We have sweet memories of visiting Irene and Bro Browning. Out came the tea cups and "darling, r u hungry?". My mother passed 33 years ago today..it was Irene that said to my Dad..."now, Bro Amburgy, it is hard but the Lord said he wouldn't put more on us than we can bear"....she was always loving, caring and giving. So many memories..and now she has earned her reward. I'm sure there was rejoicing in Heaven when Irene walked thru that gate!! God bless all the family
