To all the family … So sorry to hear of Ida’s passing. I have good memories of Ida (and Waldo) at their store. When I was a kid, I’d go in to get a gift for Mom or Dad for their birthday, Mother’s Day, or Father’s day. One time I got a bottle of Aqua Velva aftershave for Dad. I remember buying a turkey carving set with bone handles. Also a pair of sunglasses for myself which I called my “Roy Orberson” glasses because they were very dark and quite large. Good memories. My condolences.
