I was so sorry to hear that Hilde had passed away. My sincere condolences. We are in Florida, so will not be able to attend the funeral. She was a lovely lady.

My deepest sympathy to Hilde’s family. She was always so sweet and friendly to everyone. My late mom, Elaine Worm, enjoyed her friendship for many years at Luther Memorial Church. God’s peace to you at this difficult time.
