    There is little that we can say at a time like this but we know how those closest to Hilary must feel. Although her life was short, her accomplishments will influence her students, her friends, and her family for generations to come. We pray that God will give our family and Hilary’s friends the comfort and peace that only he can give.

    I will always miss her smile, laughter and wit. She was a no contest for the “wittiest” person from our class at Overton. Most of all, I never hear a clarinet play without thinking of Hilary. That will stay forever. Best wishes to her family.

    There are no words that I can express my love and admiration for Hilary. For 25 years she has raised my children during the summer at Sequoia.
    She will missed by so many people including my children. There is a quote from Scott at a young age, ” Hilary you are a women of many talents”
    I love all of you and will miss her.
    Blessing to all of you/.
