Ida and I worked together for many years at the Visiting Nurse Association. Her smile and warm personality would make the work day sunny and bright. I know that Ida's 'caring ways' brought much comfort to everyone that she met while working at the VNASC. May wonderful memories you have of Ida help you through your sorrow.
