I have a lot of wonderful memories of “IdaBelle” as she was known to us. I spent a lot of time with her and Pete. She was a wonderful person with lots of love to give. So much fun to be with back then. I’ll always think of her with love and laughter. My thoughts and prayers to you and the family Bennie. Thank you for taking such good care of her and making her happy.
