Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

    May your memories comfort you during this difficult time. Hilda was such a good friend. She not only got me started quilting but traveled with Mom (Bessie McCord) and I on many occasions. She was always there for our family with a kind word or just to comfort us when needed. You’re all in my prayers.

    My sympathy to all of you. My husband was one of the Associated Anesthesiologists (James Maher) and I met Hilda thru him. He thought very highly of her, and I found her to be a lovely lady. As a fellow quilter, I even attended some of the quilting shows she was involved in. Your mother had a beautiful smile!

    Hilda was family to us all. We will carry her in our hearts forever. She leaves a legacy of love, humility and grace. She was a beloved friend to many and like a 2nd grandmother to me. Most of my childhood memories include this sweet woman! She accompanied is on my our journey to deliver me to my first duty station at Tinker AFB, OK & even traveled all the way to Alaska to deliver a handmade for my firstborn! Hildy we adore you! As you always said, “Well, bless your little heart!” May God Bless your family as you smile down from Heaven GMere❤️

    So sorry to learn belatedly of the death of your mother. She was always thoughtful of others and a great lady. She never let brother Don and I forget that we shared her birthday. My deepest condolences to you and yours.
