I was saddened to learn of Hilda’s passing. Hilda was a beautiful lady inside and out. She was always giving those beautiful smiles away to those fortunate to cross her path. I can recall interviewing Hilda for her position with AmSouth Bank - what a treasure to work with a lady of grace like Hilda.

May the Lord give each of her love ones a peace and understanding. I know she loved her family tremendously!

God Bless!
