We are so sorry to hear of dear Hilda.
For many years the Bassett family and the Maples were the best of friends anything from eating , playing and traveling together. Hilda was one great sport and always ready to take up the slack. I remember the good times our kids and she, we would go tracking, fishing and such. Our unforgettable trip to Mexico and how much fun the four couple had. Great memories !!!
I am sorry we were not available for her services but she was in our thoughts.
