I am sorry to say that this is the first that I realized that Aunt Ida passed away; no one living in PA told me.  My sincere condolences although late.  I am glad that I did get to see her in Sept of 2016 when visiting my siblings and we did correspond for a while.  I will miss her as she became a link to my mom’s side of the family after many years of no contact after Mom’s death.
