Richey and Martinez families - my deepest condolences. With a heavy heart I give you my apologizes for not making back to Texas. Irma was a beautiful person inside and out. I always treasure her in my memory and will never forgot Irma the day she sang "One Day at a time" with her beautiful voice at mom's grave side. I will always cherish Irma her doing that for us. May GOD bless you all. June Martinez
