    Jim and Susan Iding says:
    Nelda Iding, was the dearest woman. She was full of grace, charm and adored Southern cooking. She was wise, funny, and had an outrageous sense of humor that was totally unexpected. She was lady through and through but with a backbone of iron. We loved this woman, and our hearts are broken for her loss, and for her beloved son, Greg. We're so sorry not to be with you Greg during the time you need us the most. We don't want to lose touch with you as your life changes now. You're in our thoughts constantly right now. Your mother was a gem. I'll never forget the first time that I met her and dear Caroline. They're both imprinted in our hearts forever, as are you. Love you~~Jim and Susan
