    I was so sorry to to see Ida’s obituary. I worked with Ida in the Order of Scottish Clans in the Old Webster-Atlas bank building across from the Old State House way back in 1946 through 1950. She was a very lovely lady. I remember when she and Paul got married. We were all so happy for them. I also knew her boss, Thomas R.P.Gibbm Esq. from Rockport, MA, very well and often visited him at his home surrounded by lots of Scottish heather growing among all the rocks on his property. I am almost 81 years old and hanging in there.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
