  1. Eric and Craig, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I always thought of Aunt Hilda as a classy lady. She is at peace with the Lord now. May that thought comfort you in your time of sorrow. Keep her memory close to your hearts always. I am praying for both of you and for your families also.

  2. So sorry to learn this evening of Ms Hilda’s death. She brought much joy into the world and I count knowing her a genuine blessing. She and I worked together for many years at Sears. Her integrity was impeccable, her demeanor was sweet and she personified the essence of a true southern lady. We’re sad at her leaving us here but I am sure there’s dancing and shouting in heaven. Look forward to seeing her again. Bud Dotson

  3. I am so sorry to learn of Hilda’s passing. I talked to her when her beloved George passed. She was a wonderful friend to me at Sears and after her retirement. I as well as all of the SEARS RETIREES will truly miss her.

    It’s times like these that I miss being nearby the most…. I heard of your mother’s passing on Saturday night and remembered her happy and pleasant demeanor. I hope that all went well with preparations for the service, and will pray for you during the many details that come at times like this. Hope to see you again in the time ahead.
