Bill & Sue I am so sorry.
I will always remember Ida as very welcoming to me, my sister and my family as my stepmother. She was full
of uncommon wisdom and loved us as her own. She loved my father deeply. She was the light of his life and he was devoted to
her and loved her deeply too.
sympathy to Ida's family. We lived next door to Ida and Ledge in the 70's. Great neighbors !
Don and Pat
