    So very sorry to hear of your passing dear Ida, you were a bright and shining light for Sneads Ferry and such an active member of our community, we were members of the Shrimp Festival Committee together for several years, and all the work you did for the Garden Club and so many other local Onslow County organizations, and of course the United Methodist Church of Sneads Ferry. Our heartfelt condolences to Bob and the rest of your family. Rest peacefully Ida, on the wings of the angels. Irene and Steve
