G.C., So sorry to hear of your loss. Jerry Derrick and Larry Varner both let me know. I remember all of our good times at CHS and Reformation Lutheran. Your Dad was one of my favorites. God Bless you, your children and grandchildren in this time of mourning.

Hilda was such a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, daughter-in-law and friend. I only knew her for a year, but I found her to be a very special person. We laughed a lot at our weekly Mahjongg sessions, and we all miss her very much. She will live on forever in our hearts.
