Comment by Dennis J Yancey: Though Grandma Irene was not our biological grandmother - for many of us - the grandchildren of Nathan Hale (from his first wife) - Irene was the only grandmother we ever really knew on that side of the family. She was just as much a grandmother to us - as our biological grandmother - Phyllis Watson Hale - who died before many of us could get to know her.
