  1. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Ida. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    It was my privilege to get to know Ida and work with her briefly at Di Silva’s at Quail Springs mall in the 1980’s. She was such a kind, classy lady. Then we discovered we had grown up in nearby towns. Our paths met a few times later in Edmond.

    My heartfelt sympathy.

  2. Ted, Michelle, Randy, Kevin & Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with Ida these past five years. My heartfelt thoughts go out to each of you during this most difficult time. Please take comfort in the fact that she has earned her heavenly reward and is probably having fun with Paula right now!

    God bless you all & give you his peace!

    Deepest sympathy,

    Kurt Semtner
