Iain and Chad, I have such wonderful memories of our times together and with my wee Mum. I’m so glad that I was a part of her life and hers a part of mine; a part of all of you as a family. She was always so very dear to me and it breaks my heart knowing I will never see her again. I will cherish every memory of her, (I have so many), all the laughs and the wonderful times spent with her. My heart goes out to you both and all the family, and my deepest sympathies for the loss of a truly amazing woman. She will forever be my wee Mum.

Hilda had the best sense of humor. She was always so proud of her family – with good cause. Thankfully, she convinced me to wear my hair short
She was too young to leave us.
