laughter could cure almost anything, celebrating the holidays in over the top ways, she
loved her See’s Candies, a good martini, and a barely-cooked Filet Mignon . She was
especially fond of Star Trek and Capt. Jean-Luc Picard & flamingos. She is
remembered for her fiery spirit, hospitality & her open heart. Aida lived a life that leaves
a lasting legacy of love.
