To All of Ida's Family: Ida was a wonderful friend and I shall dearly miss her. Ida and myself went to Sheridan College together, travelled to places like Niagara Falls for a 2-3 day stay, went to plays in Toronto, and we just became wonderful friends over the years. I'm not in Oakville anymore, but we kept in touch via telephone and computer. Ida was a very classy lady and we both liked doing the same things. I will miss you dear Ida, RIP, Love ya!
