To the Doolittle Family,

The Andersen family sends their heartfelt sympathies to all of you. We have so many fond memories of our Beach Pond years. Your Mom was always a person to fear but also the one with the biggest heart who was so giving and fun! When I think of Irene, I think of fritters, Charles Chips and quahogging in Matunuck!

We are sorry for your loss. Kim, on behalf of SoSun and family

Just to add to Kim Brown's message...Irene was one of the first responders when I broke my leg skiing behind their boat in 1971!
