Juan,Lucy & family,
Lifting you all in prayer for God's abundant love and peace to overpower your loss. As a little girl, I will always remember Ida & Rolis when you would come visit Tio None & Tia Yaya. I loved that fact that Ida would call my grama as her "grama". What fond memories we have. May it comfort you to know that Ida is dancing in heaven with God's angels and waiting for our time to come join her. With lots of love.
