Ida Grillo
December 29, 1936 - March 27, 2010


Sporadic CJD stole my mother’s life on earth when she was only with us for 73 years.  I would like to think that God spared her from a fate worse than this.  Eight short weeks was all it took for her to leave us, only two weeks from diagnosis from biopsy (brain).

She had a zest for life.  She loved to dance at the club, play mah jong and canasta, and hang out with her grandchildren.

To know her is to love her: Mommy, Ida, Nana … you will be greatly missed.
