Dear Daniella and Stephanie,
I want to extend my sympathy to both of you and your family.
Your mom was the best person and friend anybody could have.
We had a lot of laughs when I lived there and when I moved.
I will miss not talking with her and sharing our daily lives. we had
A lot in common.
My prayers are with both of you and a special prayer to your mom.
My deepest sympathy .

Hilda loved to have soup, cantaloupe and a coke. She would come down to the kitchen to get them. She was always warm and quick to joke. She is missed and will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
