Dear Char, Sue, Barbara and family,

I know the kind of gentle man and faithful servant your Dad was because his best qualities live on in each of you.

Sending you love and prayerful support as you now journey to Michigan to take your Dad home.

May you be strengthened for this next part of your grief journey and be bolstered by, and surrounded by, family and friends.

May that circle of love sustain you until the day you are reunited again in heaven -- our eternal home.

With sincere care,
June

The best pastor, friend, and dad one could ever have. Dad Hildreth taught me more about faith, fishing and mechanics than anyone I know. He is now fully blessed in the presence of God and His Son Jesus. God bless all the family until all are reunited in Glory.
