Dear Ted and Janet, I am so sorry to hear about your mother passing away. I have such good memories of both Charlie and Ida with my parents. Always outdoors having a boil-up and picking blueberries, wild mushrooms or whatever else was in season. Of course the amazing meals at Campbell Ave. My thoughts are with you.

Hi Ted, So sorry to hear of Ida’s passing.
My sincere condolences.

Hi Charlie, So sorry to read about your Mom’s passing this week. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Will watch for notice of the celebration of her life. Sincerely, Loretta McCarthy.

Ted and Family,

Sending my sincere condolences on the passing of your Mother, Ida.

She was a beautiful, lovely lady. I have a fond memory when she joined us in the basement and had a laugh with us “kids”.

To Ida’s family:
Sorry for your loss, your Mother was a lovely human being, kind and generous.
I meet her at Rita and Johnny’s many years ago. We became friends. When she was at Rita’s we laughed a lot, Ida had a great laugh. She will be missed

Charlie and Family:

So sorry for your loss. I remember when I was small, I thought your mother was the most beautiful woman in the world, with her gorgeous red hair. She was beautiful to the very end. God bless and take care.

Bob, Theresa, Christopher, Clyde and Margaret Forsey all send our love to the family. We hadn’t seen Ida for about a month and we expected her to be around for a while yet. No matter the age, our mothers are still our mummies and grandmums and it’s a sad loss. Our thoughts are with you.

Ted, Janet And families, we are so heartbroken to hear of Aunt Ida’s passing. She was such a wonderful, special lady. Her stories and her family history lessons will be forever treasured. She holds a special place in my heart (since Wayne introduced us 36 years ago) but she will always be a piece of Wayne’s, she was his favorite and he loved his visits with her every chance he could get. Know that we share your grief in the loss of this amazing woman. GOD BLESS YOU AUNT IDA, WE LOVE YOU, Wayne, Debbie Ryan, Cody & Bowen Giles
