    I am so sorry for your loss.  My Mom, Myrtle Rowe, often said that Ida was her longest living relative and that made her proud to say it.  Mom always had Ida's picture displayed in her house.  She thought a lot of her and through my Mom, I learned respect and love for Ida.  By coincidence, Ida was buried on my Mom's 90th birthday --- one more thing they had in common.  God bless you all as you go through this.  My heart and prayers are with you all.

    My mom, Myrtle Estep Rowe, talked often of Ida and was so happy the two of them could stay in touch.  Ida and Mom are now talking together in heaven!  I am so very sorry to hear of Ida's passing.
