    Hulda, this past year I got to know you personally from our Killarney MahJongg group. You always had a smile on your face and never sugar coated anything. You were such a warm,honest and thoughtful person. I will truly miss you. I did pray very hard that God would bring you back home but I guess He wanted you more. My memories of you will never be forgotten. My prayers will continue for your family that God will give them the strength to get through this most difficult time. RIP my dear.❤️

    Dear TC, Hulda was a lovely lady and was full of faith. I got to know her through our FC Women’s Bible Study and we shared some very meaningful conversations about our Lord. I am very saddened for your loss because you shared many wonderful decades together. I will miss her but am comforted to know that she is at peace with God. Blessings, Leisa Schultz (Psalm 116:15).

    Forty years ago we had the good fortune to meet and serve with TC and Hulda at Ft Bragg. We have remained steadfast friends since then and have increased our love and respect for them immensely. They are wonderful examples of love, beauty, compassion, faith, patriotism and endless enthusiasm for life and the multitude of friends who swarmed them with affection. May God rest Hulda's soul and comfort TC and the family and friends until we meet again. Your Stickbuddy, George, Sandie & Kelly.
