Ida, I remember how much I admired your strength. I met you when I was a young mother and I remember how you graciously opened your home to me and my family, when we would go visit Becky and her Family. I saw the Love you had for your own Family and Especially your grandkids and thought how much I wanted to be just like you. So Thank you for that. I know you will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Ida.
