(Isaiah 25:8) What a wonderful time to look forward to when well never have to experience losing those dear to us in death ever again! 09/23/2015 Donna L. West I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Iris. We helped her celebrate her 80th at a great party. I hold many fond memories of great parties at the home she and Paul lived on the water when I worked at Horn Point in the late 70s, crabbing on Pauls boat, She has been on my mind lately and I even said to Roger, we need to take a ride over to see Iris. I had no idea she had moved to a home. May she rest in Peace and have a great reunion with Paul and Sandy. Jim you have the Slacum legacy to maintain. 09/17/2015 Ida Slaughter Hickman Iris, Remembering when we were young...all those years ago.
