I am truly shocked and sadden to hear of Miss Hilda's passing. I saw her often at the hospital and each time we spoke she always made my day. She was a patient but felt like a friend and I will greatly miss her and our talks. She always had a way of making me smile and I will never forget her or her spunky personality. Praying for peace and comfort for the family and what a day it will be when we get to see her again, she was loved dearly!
