    A great loss not just to me but to all who knew him. IRA and his wife were two of the most important people in my life. IRA was always there for me. He will be missed beyond any words that I can write here. Joel and Kenny you were very lucky to have two great parents. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family on this sad day.
