Condolence & Memory Journal

My deepest sympathy to Ida's loved ones. Working w/Ida @ G.M., she was thoughtful & generous, always cheerful & such a delightful co-worker, who taught me my accounting job. Seeing her through the years, she remained the outgoing gal, always inquiring on how things were going, etc. May she rest in peace, enjoying her eternal reward.

Dear Ida - you were the nicest, most thoughtful person that I ever knew. You always had a smile when I saw you. Always concerned about my well being. It was a joy working with you at the welfare office and seeing you at the Merrimack Restaurant. You will be missed.
