There is no place like home


Last updated 7/26/2018 at Noon

My grandmother, Davida Hille, was one of my favorite people in the world. She passed away a few years ago. It has been very difficult for me.

One thing that helps though is to see all of you. All of you remind me of her and the time I have spent in Washtucna.

Although I haven’t known many of you since I was a child, it is nice to see and talk with you. It is so nice to see the friendly faces of the Gilchrests, the Meises, the Jessops, the Guskys, the Clinesmiths, the Hoffmans, all of my extended Hille family and many more.

Thank you for always showing up for my family. I loved spending time in Washtucna.

I have the best memories of riding to the drug store/Country Rose barefoot on a bike to get candy and then heading up to the pool for the entire day.

Washtucna is definitely the place I call home.
