Hilda was a Sigma sister. I send condolences to her family. I am out of town and will not be at the viewing or funeral.

Miss Aishe was one of my favorite and most memorable teachers. To this day, I follow the writing rules she set for us in English class, and I judge all writing by her standards. I have been a sportswriter for more than 40 years, and I owe much of my attention to detail and love for words to Miss Aishe. I never have forgotten her and wish I had reached out to her long before her passing.
