By the hundreds, students show their appreciation for Irene, her story, and message by making cards and artwork for her. Here are examples of what she has received.
Dear Irene Butter, I feel like when she had to leave (your) father's dead body behind was an extremely emotional experience. I feel for you and the experience you must have had. -Fran
The seasons change throughout the years, and many people live in fear. They hide away from the rest of the world, while other people stood and quarreled, over who was going to live. But soon when they had learned to cope, they saw it was better to live in hope. So like the seasons they decided to change from fear to hope, and death to life, ending a. reign of terror. - Maddy Hanton
