    I am so sorry to learn of Hilda’s passing. She was a sweet and kind lady. Also she had a beautiful voice and I enjoyed hearing her sing the few times she was in the choir at FBC. My prayers are for the family.

    Loved MS Hilda! She always had a smile and I would always ask her if she was behaving...she would look at me and say...now what the fun in that. I have such fond memories of her during choir practice..we had the best time. I know she's singing with the angels
