Hilda is the eldest of the children of Lewis William Arrowood and Maude Rose Hull Arrowood. She is almost eighty years old and writing beautiful poems, still. God Bless you Aunt Hilda.
We had a special Aunt down here, but she's an angel now,
Everyone is happy she's home and we will get along, somehow.
What a time she's having with her sisters and her Lord.
She enjoyed living and never seemed bored.
I'll never forget her saying, "Stop and smell the coffee", to me,
she knew we needed to slow down to look for all the beauty to see.
Her two sons are special and she loved them so,
And her grandchildren would have been the reason,
for her not wanting to go.
She planned a birthday party for me, such plans she did make,
While running up the stairs, she fell and her elbow went through the cake.
She had many nieces, but I was first to come along,
she loved me dearly and according to her, I could do no wrong.
Most of her life, she lived with Grandpa and Grandma Hull,
when we all went to visit, it was anything but dull.
We were so blessed to be part of a family like that,
she was so pretty dressed up and sometimes, she wore a hat.
The movie stars of her day, they could not compare,
everyone who saw her, could not help but stare.
She was the baby of the family, but to me she was a queen.
Her sweet smile, black hair, and the prettiest face I have ever seen.
She would say to us, get ready, to come live on that beautiful shore.
When our time comes to cross over, she will be waiting inside the door.
