My Aunt Hilda was special to me! I spent a lot of time over at Aunt Hilda and Uncle Jim’s house. She was the last of 7 children in Grandma and Grandpa DeVries’ family. I miss all of them. Love you Aunt Hilda. Give My parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, Ron and Mary a hug for me!

I cannot imagine the magnificent reunion you are having with your kids , Jim and all your family and friends..
We are grateful for your sweet friendship of 30 years ...
Hilda Mary, you taught me so much about Everything... like bowling, golf, gambling, playing cards, the names of my fingers in Dutch, relationships, the value of being a westsider... you even taught me about storing ice so it doesn’t stick together....and how to live with grace through the deepest sorrows.... plus you taught all of us that age doesn’t have to hold you back, I vividly remember your performance during a super bowl half time show when you rocked the field with Bruce Springsteen!!!
You were always honest and straight forward and ready to laugh and enjoy life...
Tom and I Deeply love and respect you ....we will forever carry you in our hearts.. we both say the times we spent with you were some of the best times of our lives... cheers girlfriend...
to our final final... final...
until we meet again...
❤️ ❤️ ❤️
