I am sorry for your loss. Ida was a special lady. Every time I would go see her, she would not necessarily know me by name but knew I was one of Margaret and Denis' girls. At Ida's 90th birthday (and if any of you knew my Dad) she told me my Dad needed a horse whip across his butt for his shenanigans. I told my Dad and he laughed. Ida always treated my Mom so decently. May your memories help you through this difficult time.

Dear Cousins, I'm so sorry to know of the loss of your Mom, She was beautiful Aunt and Godmother, always wanting to know what was happening in my life. Like you I will miss her. I know she was greeted with love and thanksgiving by her siblings, son, husbands, family and friends in our eternal world. God Bless all of you. Unfrtunately I will not be able to attend her funeral. Hugs and Love. Loretta
