We send our deepest condolences to the entire Granata family. Ida always made us feel like part of her family. She was "Nana" to my kids and they looked forward to seeing her when she would come visit Chicago or when we would visit California. She will be missed but will not be forgotten. May she rest now in peace in her new eternal life. God Bless Ida and the Granata family,
The Wachowski Family , Arlington Heights IL
