I will forever cherish the memories I have of our time we had together. You knew me as your caregiver but, to me you wasn't my job or just another client. You was family I hadn't met yet. From day one it was as if I had known you my whole life and I didn't realize how much of a empact you and your family would have on my life until Betsy walked through the door that morning on the first day of my shift and immediately my eyes grew heavy with happy tears seeing that your daughter had been my Kindergarten teacher. The bond I had with you and your family after that grew more and more as time passed. Susan, Betsy, and other family I got to meet during my time with you was so loving and caring with their gratitude they shown me. They made me feel like family. I will never forget you and your love you had for your family and us all that cared for you. You was so kind, sweet, loving, such a caring and patient woman and loved your family and God dearly. You gave me praise and words of wisdom that I will always take with me through life. My heart still aches with pain of losing you. I know you knew I was there with you, Susan, Betsy and Jenny when God took you home. I will forever carry you with me through my work and remember you always! I love and miss you dearly Mrs. Hilda. With deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Mrs. Hilda Plaster, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. With love always, -Bobbie Jo Suite (Lipstick Girl)
