For Hilda’s many family members and great friends:

Since death its gloom,

its shadows cast,

Within our home,

where all seemed bright.

And took from us

a shining light.

We miss that light

and ever will,

Hilda’s place,

there’s none to fill

Down here we mourn,

but not in vain,

For up in heaven

we will meet again.

At Hilda’s request, cremation has taken place and no services are to be held.
