My sincere condolences to my cousins. I had a nice visit with Idamae last year when I chaperoned JCA students for a service day at OLA. She was always kind to me. My prayers are for her and all of you.

Idamae was such a caring and loving person. She lit up the room with her bright smile. She could talk on and on about her family and her hobbies. She loved to talk about cooking and her mothers lemon pie. She would always talk about going dancing. Playing Bingo was one of her favorite things to do. One time we were playing bingo and she said did I win the big bucks yet?. She could make someones day so much brighter with her presence. Idamae was loved by so many. I will definitely miss her so much! Keeping you and your family in my prayers
