Clayton, I am so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since we lived next to each other in Siloam.

David, Bayne, Harrison, Meme, Sue, and Ronnie, We are heartbroken over the loss of "Miss" Hilda and yet we know that she is at peace and in heaven with her loved ones. We just found out about her death. We already miss her phone calls for Mark. She was a treasure and I loved seeing her on Sundays.

Love Mark and Susan and family
