Sandy and Family-Your mother was very special to us. We have had many fun nights with our "Maragarita Posse" reminiscing about all subjects. Just good times.

So sorry for your loss. Uncle John really thought a lot of Ida Mae, and so did I. We didn't get to see each other often, but the love was there. Aunt Ruth used to keep us up to date. Again, I am so sorry. Aunt Clara

Ida was my neighbor and friend when I lived on Channonbrook. We were huge Cleveland Indian fans, we would scream at them one day, then the next day be praising them, all in all, we loved our "Tribe". Ida, rest in peace, the Indians are doing great! I miss you!
My prayers and condolences to Ida's family.

My time getting to know Ida was too short. She was always very smiley and pleasant and oh so helpful to her friends at our church. She will be greatly missed. May the Lord comfort and bring peace to her family and friends.

Ida, was a special friend to me. We would golf and sat around talking about everything. She would be so happy right now that the Indians are doing so well. I miss not being able to talk with her right now. But I know she smiling down on everyone that she touched.
