Death: Oct. 21, 2008

Ida Andrews, 82, passed away, Monday, October 21, 2008 in Las Cruces. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me into the path of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of death I will fear no evil: Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
