Allen, Jo Ellen, Tracy and Mr. Beb and family, I am so sad to hear about Mrs. Hilda. She sewed many dresses for me when I was very little. She was a wonderful lady and I will pray for all of you. She lived a wonderful long life and you are all so lucky to have had her with you for so many happy years.
