It was very interesting to hear Hilda speak of her child hood growing up in Holland.
Her father would take them skating on the canal in Holland after school for ice cream in the near by village. She spoke of the hard times during the war while living in Holland.
Hilda volunteered many hours driving seniors to appointments.
I will miss her smile, the evening chats and her company. Good memories!

My deepest sympathy Carola, Carl and family. We will miss Hilda very much, here at her home at Fairfields. She was a very special lady.
