Ida was a friend of my Grandmother, Margaret Holford. I remember her coming to visit my Grandma often. She was a very nice lady. My prayers and condolences to her family.

Ida was just such a beautiful person! My kids were up at the Hector blueberry patch about 10 yrs ago, and Ida pulled in. Told my boys all about that place being her " playground" as she called it, while she was growing up! My boys were fascinated with her stories and will never forget that. Much loved.

If we liken this life to that of a book of stories...we can now acknowledge that we have lost one of its best all time story tellers. Now it is us that must take up the duty of telling and retelling the stories she has shared with us in order to perpetuate her memory even further. Aunt Ida...you are sadly missed...never forgotten...forever loved.

I always loved visiting Aunt Ida! I loved hearing her stories of when she was growing up with all her brothers and sisters. I especially loved to hear her tell me stories about my grandpa (her brother, Fred). My favorite being the challenge they had between each other to find the first Trailing Arbutus flower every spring!!

Tenderly, may time heal you sorrow. Gently, may friend ease your pain. Softly, may peace replace heartaches. And may warmest memories remain.
