Sherry and Family,
You are all in my heart and prayers as you walk this most difficult journey. In the days and months to come, please know that I am here should you need someone beyond your close knit circle of family and friends to talk with.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Hilary, she and I were good friends in high school. I will always remember her as a "cool little girl" so sweet, funny and pretty. My deepest sympathies, Teresa

Dearest Starr and Mikey, Your mom was my friend for alot of years...She taught me so much about life, especially growing things. I love gardening now, and always think of her when Im planting something. We lost touch a few years ago when we moved away from Clarkesville, phone numbers etc..I never thought I would never see her again, or hear her cheerful voice.
She was my friend when I needed one, Im so sad that I wasnt there for her when she needed me. I didnt find out about her memorial until today and I live 6hours away or I would have been there for you.
Im on FB contact I would love to speak with you and remain friends.
Know that she loved you both so very much.
Love, Hugs and Prayers,

To the family of Hilary,
I went to highschool with Hilary. She was a very kind and sweet person. We were not real close but she was a friend. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray for you all through this hard time. Its so hard to understand why, but know that she is not in pain. I feel in my heart that she is in Heaven. God Bless you Hilary, I am just so sorry that we could not have been closer in friendship.
