I am so sorry to hear about your mother! I did not know she was back in this area, or I would have tried to visit her. My memories of growing up down the street from her are wonderful. Gloria, you were my best friend for so many years! I look back on that time with much fondness. Also, she made the BEST chicken and spaghetti I've ever eaten! Please know I love you all still.

May God go with the family and hold them close to Him. I am so sorry I could not be there. Hilda was loved and will be missed more than we realize. Just knowing she is at peace and with the Lord makes it easier to go on without her. She was always there for me when I needed help. She was a very good Big Sister. We were all blessed by having her in our life.
