Heaven sure got a good one now. I have know Hilda as a child growing up, with Pat and later in life she was my neighbor.she has always a good friend, and someone I looked up to as a role model. Funny when she felt the need to laugh and serious when she had to be. This will leave a void in my life. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
