    So sorry to hear of Hila’s passing. I am a second cousin of hers. My mother, Annie Gentry Veach wrote to Hila until she went to the nursing home. We talked to Hila once from mamas room. Sure would like to be there for Clyde and the boys, but it is impossible at this time.
    Just want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. I will copy Hila’s obit and take it to mama. Mama celebrated her 98th birthday the 21st of May. God Bless all the family.
