Ms. Wade lived a long lfe, and I know she will be missed. But know that God will surround and comfort you at this difficult time. Psalms 71:21.
Your family have my sincere condolences. Death is never easy and it brings great sorrow. But know that God will surround and comfort you at this difficult time. He is aware of your pain and he cares for you.. 1st Peter 5:7.
After she moved to Springfield, Hilda attended Sunday School and church & Republican women's club with my mother and myself.  We enjoyed having her in our home for various holiday meals and other occasions, and, we visited her at her various Springfield addresses through the years.  She and Mother were in Quail Creek when Mother passed away.  One afternoon, Kathy Miller brought Hilda to Mother's room to visit us . . . Hilda was one of Mother's last visitors.  When they were in their homes and visiting one another, they always enjoyed 'talking' politics. Hilda attended Mother's 100th birthday party.  We have a wonderful photo of her at the party.  If any of the family would like a copy of the photo, they may contact me. Recently, I visited Hilda and read Psalm 119 to her.  I will miss her and her wit!
