Thank you to those “special” individuals at the Luther Memorial Home in Mayville who took time each day to care for Hilma. There is no greater calling than that of service. Thank you also to Helen Strand for being such a good caring friend in Hilma’s time of need. John 14:1-4 Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know where I am going and how to get there. There will be no services at Hilma’s request.
