Vlad and family,

Please accept our prayers of strength in this time of loss.

We respect your wish for private family service. Know that we are there in our thoughts. We have experienced the loss of loved ones. It is not easy, but trust that time will heal.

My earliest vivid memories of Irene date from the time both of us were grad students at Vic university in Wellington, NZ. She was finishing a PhD, I was fresh out of my BSc. There were 5 of us on a road-trip to Otago for a conference, during which Irene taught me a very valuable life-lesson, and it had nothing to do with Math - that humour is the only way to sensible way of getting through a bout of food-poisoning. I vaguely knew Irene prior to that, but that is certainly the memory of Irene that is going to stick with me from those early days.

Many years later, immigration brought me to Québec, and Irene and Vladimir to Ottawa. It was so nice to see you both again after all this time, in this new place. Though I must confess to a deep regret that, over these last few years, I have had so few chances to enjoy your company. I certainly hope Irene knew how much esteem I have for you both.

To Vladimir, Xenia and Slava, my family and I would like to offer you our condolences, and we wish you much love and serenity in coming to terms with Irene's passing.

Irene will always hold a special place in my heart and in my memories. She showed me what true friendship was, with her warmth and compassion, sensitivity and understanding.
I am privileged to have known her and to have been her friend.
The world is a sadder, poorer place without her, but her courage and spirit will continue to be an inspiration to us all. Thank you Irene.

To dear Vladimir, Xenia and Slava. Our thoughts are very much with you at this time. When you all arrived in NZ so many years ago we thought what a wonderful family you were and how lucky the University and NZ were that you chose us. Of course, Irene was central to that wonderful family and we will remember her as a mother foremost as well as a mathematician. We have great admiration for the way she was able to adapt to a new culture, look after her family so well and to further her study and career. You will miss her very much but can always be glad you had her as a wife and mother.

To Vladimir and family: I wish you strength at this time of loss. Remember all the good times as these memories will live forever.
