A Very Special Lady

Aunt Ida quietly passed away today at the Terrace Nursing and Rehab Facility while I was with her. She was my dad's sister, was like a second mother to me and a grandmother to my children. She lost her only son in 1957 and her husband in 1967. She was a very strong lady who loved to laugh. She was an avid sports fan, and an excellent golfer.
Aunt Ida gave me my first etiquette book when I was 16 years old, and she started me on my teacup collecting journey when she gave me these beautiful teacups many years ago.

Aunt Ida celebrated her 95th birthday last December. We will miss her, but we have many happy memories of special times together.
