My deepest condolences to the family. May God comfort your hearts and strengthen you all during this most difficult time. -2 Thessalonians 2:16,17

I'm sorry for your loss. I hope the Corder family will draw comfort from the words found at Psalm 145:18.

I am so sorry for your great loss. May the God who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds sustain your family during this challenging time. (Psalm 147:3)

Ida and Orray were good friends to my dad... I knew their names from his stories about being in NY as a young dentist long before I ever met them. And when I did meet them, I was not disappointed. They were kind, beautiful people. Shields hung in victory! But still a loss for us here.

Thinking of you in the loss of a dear mother. My memory of her-- many years ago when we lived in PA. --was of a gracious, warm and lovely lady. She was a contemporary of Ken's mother, Mary, (95) and she often spoke of their friendship when they were younger. When we spoke to her of Ida's passing she said , "There aren't too many of us left." We feel for you in the loss of a special Mom but know you are comforted with the hope that she lived by.

Bonnie, Nancy, Britta and Adria. Such bitter sweet news to hear of Ida's passing. Bitter when human ties ate broken, but sweet to think of all the wonderfully pleasant memories of her life and most of all the sweetness of another faithful life finished in honor. Ida lived her life for eternity. The years we enjoyed meeting in the Corder home will always hold a special place in our hearts and memories. Orray was a true elder and Ida was such an inspiration and a true example of godliness. ...

Thinking of you all with much love and sympathy. What a special lady!

Our love & sympathy to all the family in your loss! Ida was a very gracious woman with a warm welcoming smile for everyone. We appreciate these faithful lives who have finished the journey strong in faith and full of joy! Such an inspiration to all still on this journey of life. We're sorry we can't be at the service, but our thoughts are with you!
Love, Kent & Sharon
