Aunt Hilda was a very special lady with a keen sense of humor. We were always amazed at how sharp her mind was when we visited her. She always remembered who we were even though we couldn't visit her very often. She lived a good long life and enjoyed her family and she will be missed. Our deepest sympathy and prayers are with Shirley, Sharon, and Paul and their families.
