ADD A MEMORY

Hilda (Nana), gracious lady, became a close friend the day I met her and Wilf during Thanksgiving weekend 2001. Her sharp mind and positive outlook would shine when ever we discussed, her childhood, family, politics and the Royal Family. It was a thrill for her to receive a letter of congratulations from Queen Elizabeth II when Hilda celebrated her 100th birthday.
My fond memories of Hilda include her relaxing on her sofa at Chatsworth, chatting and reminiscing. This picture of Hilda was taken New Years Day, 2007.
