Bill, just meeting you and talking to you I could sense the love and care you shared for your beloved wife. My prayers are with you and your family. God Bless!

My sweet sweet Hilde. May you Rest In Peace. Praying for Bill and his family during this difficult time.

Aunt Hilda was such a loving and kind woman. I feel so fortunate to have had her for my aunt. I often think about all the times we visited Virgil Ave in Ridgefield and felt welcomed and loved. Our hearts go out to all of you and know that you'll have sweet memories to forever hold in your heart. We love you.

Bill our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

Hilda, my sister. We may have been many miles apart but she has always been my dear sister. She was a wonderful wife, mother and sister (and grandmother). I love her and her family very much. I miss her so but I know she is at peace. Much love, Elsie
