Dear Paul & Julie

I wanted to pass on my sincere sympathy for the loss of your beloved mother. Aunt Ida was one of a kind. She was never afraid to speak her mind and had a wonderful sense of humor. Growing up in Seabrook, MD, Aunt Ida would visit often and make mounds of food for all of us. She was instrumental in my life often keeping me on the straight path by sharing a kind word or a swift kick when needed.You see,your Mom was always my other mother growing up. I'm so glad I got to give her a big hug and a kiss a few years back. RIP Aunt Ida. Your in heaven now cooking a big Polish meal for all of the angels now. I love you !

As I have gotten to know your mother over the years, she has always been kind. I know she is at peace and with the ones she loves, too. It is a difficult time and a comfort to know she has lived a good life and that she loved and cared for her family.

Dear Paul and Julie,

You have my sincere condolences on the loss of your mother, my Aunt Ida. I will cherish the many fond memories I have of her and will always remember her with love in my heart. She was a very special lady indeed. I truly believe she is now with the angels in heaven watching over you, Janet, and her Granddaughter, Marie, along side Uncle Frank and Frances.

Paul and Julie, what a beautiful mom she was. In spirit, in life, Ida was able to transcend generations. I was always impressed with her vigor and ability to live life to the fullest. Now that she has escaped her suffering, Ida has joined her family members who have gone before her. She will be missed but her legacy will always be with you and all of us who had the pleasure to know her.

Dear Julie & family, Your Mom is now an angel in heaven as she joins the communion of saints with the other members of your family who have gone before her. You, your brother & family did a wonderful job taking care of her every need. She will always be near you and now she will be taking care of all of you. My sincere sympathy.

Dear Julie & Family, At last your Mom is at peace; she will suffer no more. She was a good Mom, Julie, but you were a wonderful daughter. What a reunion in Heaven! (AUNT GERT must have driven her right to your family.) Maureen & Barbara Ann hope to be at the Mass. Left Deborah an email. Special love, Eileen
