    So sorry for your loss. I remember your mom when we were all members of that tiny little Catholic Church with just a handful of Catholics in Fayetteville.

    There is no one in this world like Mrs. Hilda Troy. She was a special woman. We always admired her caring and selfness nature. She was a true friend. Someone who always a pleasure to have around. Her kindness was contagious and her memory will live on forever. She will truly be missed.

    The only blessing in death is the end of pain for Hilda. Families still hurt because of loss of a sweet lady. But at least she isn’t hurting!

    I loved Mrs. Troy and she has always been good to me and my family. She was a sweet and kind lady. There were many times it took me longer to clean because we had our chats in the morning. She was a blessing . Love and prayers to the family.

    Hilda and I met for the first time just this past December. In our brief encounter I learned of her faith in God and Christ. She believed in prayer and was looking forward to meeting Jesus face to face. It was my privilege and honor to have shared part in her faith journey.

    John 14:2-3 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
