  1. Our deepest condolences and prayers to you all. I have many good memories of the times we cousins shared over the years growing up and the visits with you at 1889 Juliet in St. Paul. Hilary Ann was often the “spark” we needed to have some extra fun. Now we can look for her “star” to catch her spirit. Rose Ann and Tom Crawford

  2. Our deepest sympathies to the Sullivan Family. Hilary was our friend and neighbor for many years.She was a lady of kindness, humility, warmth, and good humor. She will always be remembered in our hearts and prayers with love.We will treasure all of those good times and memories, especially her laugh!

  3. I am so sad to hear about this news about Hilary… I loved Hilary so much, and was sorry once she left Princess Cruises we only had a few phone conversations. Her laugh was so contagious and she always made you feel as though you were important to her. She gave the best advice to many and was a dear friend to many of us still at Princess Cruises. I am so sorry I did not try and get in contact with her… I am very sad we have lost her, I feel lucky that I did know her and her heart of GOLD

  4. For over 20 years she was our neighbor, our friend, our inspiration. Hilary was, and will alway be, the person we name as a perfect example of how someone can live their life with beauty, strength, laughter, and a positive attitude. Oh my, we’ll miss her laugh.

  5. We have just lost a beautiful person. Hilary and I shared many laughs and she was a trusted friend. I will miss her dearly. My deepest sympathy to her family. I wish you strength during this difficult time.

  6. To the family of dear Hilary: I was so saddened to learn today of HIlary’s passing. I worked with her at Princess Cruises in the 1980s. What a lovely, classy, friendly woman I knew her to be. I will pray for the repose of her soul, but I have a feeling she went straight home into the arms of God. I will pray for her family who remain without her…for now. Blessings, Carmen
