I am so very sorry to hear of Hilda's passing. I was so grateful to have kept a relationship with her since the ole Swastika days. Whenever we would see each other, we chatted and laughed as if we had just seen each other.
Hilda was such a beautiful lady, always smiling and so proud of each and everyone of her Family.
Rest in Peace Hilda...You will be missed xoxo
Thinking of you all (hugs)

We are so sorry for your loss, it's always hard to say goodbye. We most often saw Hilda in recent years at Joe and Jodi's cottage on Kapakita Lake. Hilda loved being surrounded by her family, and we could see that she was a good sport and would enjoy anything that was going on around her. Hilda was a good example for people to learn how to enjoy their life and family. We will miss seeing Hllda enjoying her life.

Deepest condolences to the family, I was so sorry to hear of Hilda's passing. Another member of Swastika's oldest families I had the great pleasure of being related to and hanging with. It is not easy saying goodbye to our loved ones, but I believe we will see them again. RIP Hilda.

My mom Irene sends her deepest sympathy to aunt Hilda's children and grandchildren. They had a few good chats in the past year. She so wishes they could have had a visit in person but the chats on the phone were great.

Chris and I send our condolences to my cousins whom we haven't had the opportunity to really get to know since we became adults and moved on with all our own lives. Thoughts prayers and hugs to you and your families. Treasure the memories
