It was a real pleasure taking care of Ida at Allied, we would talk & share stories, when I first met Ida I asked her if she would like for me to pray for her after I helped her to bed, she was really blessed with that, then after that every time I helped her to bed, she would say Michael, say that prayer for me again, again it was great pleasure to know Ida, she will be missed! My condolences and prayers go out to her family. May the Love of God and the memories of your loved one give you strengh! Michael cna

Ida was such a sweet, wonderful and funny woman. I remember the first time I met her. She fussed over myself and my husband at the time. She cooked all day knowing we were coming for a visit. Then, my husband turned her down when she offered him home made gravy, meatballs and spaghetti. OMG. I will never forget the look in her eyes! LOL I thought she was going to kill him. He told her he just ate and was full. Well, Ida "let him have it"... she told him how she cooked all day, etc. I just looked at him and said, "You NEVER tell an Italian woman you are not hungry when they cooked all day for you." He ended up eating every dish she made that day and she was very happy! I loved her very much and have known her for over 30 years. I will miss her so much. May you rest in peace sweet Ida. I know you will be giving Phil the business in Heaven and keeping him on his toes. Till we meet again....

I remember the first time i met you at the dough nut social you were up set because you could sleep because you missed your husband. I told you to tell your one daughter to bring his jacket so you would have something close to you that was his. I hope by telling you this helped.And the next time i saw you i walked in your room on long hall with the pumpkin for you. You said were going to give it to your grand son i think you said. I would see you off and on.I didnt really know how sick you were or i would have come to see you.But i did paint a frame of 2 colors of blue for your dog. Your one daughter came and asked if she could have the frame i said i made it for your MOM i said she didnt have to ask it was given to your my Betsey so you had the right because it was for her Mom .I hope now you will be near your Hubby pretty soon when your guarding angel will take you to him and you two will be happy now.But your family will be able to talk to you and you will help help them threw these try days.Your family will talk to you every day and night.I know i miss you very much and i am going to paint a two color rock with you name on it For you out in the Garden. Betsey miss you very much.
