Enjoyed working with Ms Imra at Grace. She was my supervisor for years. She was very passionate about her job. She was a woman of small words, but would get her point across. I would pick her up and take her home everyday. In return, she would always order my cologne from Avon for me. She will definitely be missed.

I was so surprised and broken hearted to see this obit about Irma Lee. She was 7 months older than me and we were always so close growing up, as I was with all of the Simmons kids! We grew up in the same church and we were always there. When I would be in the hospital she would always come see me. I loved her so much 😇. I know she’s already with Jesus!
