To my friend Ida,
Always generous, never afraid to tell it like it is, and among the most important people in my life. We talked about anything and everything. Every important decision in my life was discussed with her. She always told me, "don't worry, everything happens in it's time." I came to trust that saying and to stop worrying so much about things I couldn't control.
We traded stories, food (lots of food), many knitting patterns, yarn and so much love.
Ida, I will love you forever. 🧡💔

Ida, my heart is so heavy with grief that I cannot say goodbye to you at this time. Tell me how I am supposed to say goodbye to the person that has been so much in my life? To the person that has been with me in sorrow and in joy, that has shared laughter and tears with me so many times, that has been my companion and co-conspirator since our youth?
I am going to miss that hearty laugh and that mischievous twinkle in your eyes. I am going to miss that expression of genuine happiness when I came to visit you. Our closeness was that of giddy sisters and pranksters.
My fondest memory of you is your selfless generosity. For countless hours you knitted and crocheted gifts for so many people. Little booties and hats for new babies, shawls, sweaters, blankets and gloves for so many of your nieces, nephews and friends.
I cannot say goodbye so I will say farewell until I see you again.
Love is eternal,
