  1. To the Wade family and friends deepest condolences for the loss of your love one Hilary. Please read God’s wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death it brings hope and comfort in this time of grief and sorrow John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4.

  2. I worked with Hilary while I was a student at the University of Bridgeport in the late 1970’s. I was a Public Relations intern/writer and she was the department administrative assistant to the Director of Public Relations. Because of her shy demeanor and attractive appearance (that long blonde hair and her stylish way of dressing), some people misread her as being standoff-ish. But I knew Hilary to have a wonderful (dry) sense of humor and a warm, good heart. I was shocked and saddened to learn of her death. Though it has been many years since I’ve seen her, I have very fond memories of working in Cortwright Hall alongside Hilary. And though Claudia and Diana probably don’t remember me, I met each of them at different times when they visited Hilary at work. My sincere condolences to them and her extended family.
