Condolences

Condolence From: Judith Carolyn Ross
Condolence: I will always have fond memories of Uncle Ralph, as he was a spiritual mentor to me. He had a warm and gentle spirit, filled with kindness, love, understanding and compassion towards everyone. He truly abided in Christ. I am grateful to have known such a wonderful person.

Condolence From: Victoria Lazok
Condolence: It was so nice today to celebrate Grandpa's life with others who loved him and whom he loved. I am happy he is free now as it was hard to see him trapped in a body that no longer served him. I will always remember his sense of humor and the twinkle in his eye when Grandma was giving him instructions. I am lucky to have such good memories of him.

Condolence From: Dwayne Hilsden
Condolence: Today, I'll cherish the gift of my Grandpa who has loved and served the Lord faithfully throughout his lifetime and who loved and prayed for me. I'm betting there are a few he offered up for me that can still be answered, but I'm sure glad at least one has already ... I'll see you in Heaven Grandpa!

Condolence From: Donna Black
Condolence: Pastor Ralph Hilsden was one of the most wonderful people I have ever known. It has been years since I have seen him but I remember how he compassionately cared for the people in his care. Always he affirmed my desire to serve the Lord as he did with all the young people in our church. His family welcomed me into their home: the parsonage linked to Speedvale Pentecostal Tabernacle in Guelph. To this day I cannot play crokinole without thinking about the gigantic crokinole board our youth group enjoyed playing on in the basement of the parsonage. It had been crafted beautifully by Pastor Hilsden’s own hands.

How can one measure the influence that someone has had on a young person’s life? As a young girl Pastor Hilsden was instrumental in providing opportunities for me to grow in faith and to develop ministry skills. Words of a Ray Boltz song reflect my thoughts at this time “Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave.”

Pastor Hilsden may no longer walk on this earth, but his influence will live on eternally in the lives of those he impacted.

Owen and I offer our thoughts and prayers to the Hilsden family as you celebrate the life of a true man of God.

Condolence: I will always deeply miss my Grandpa and forever cherish the memories of his welcoming smile and warm hugs. I am comforted knowing that he is now seeing the welcoming smile and warm embrace of his Lord, Saviour, and friend Jesus Christ.
Love you Grandpa!

Condolence From: Paul Hilsden
Condolence: I have been so blessed to have a father who I always knew loved me intensely, prayed for me daily, and would do anything for me he was capable of. And my dad was capable of just about anything.

The greatest thing he did for me was to teach me about Jesus and then back up his teaching with a consistent committed life for me to watch and try to emulate. Never critical, always proud of me no matter what.

People all over southern Ontario know him to be a caring pastor and an encouraging leader. Some of his parishioners went on to full time vocational ministry, in part because of his leadership and example.

My sadness came when I saw my dad's mind deteriorate due to age related dementia and when he lost his mobility. The strong carpenter, pastor, house builder and church construction superintendent, has been confined to a wheelchair for a long time now.

My sadness has turned to incredible joy knowing that he is no longer confined in any way (in fact he is now more free than any of us here) and is in the presence of the Lord Jesus whom he served with passion and dedication all his life.

See you someday on the other side Dad - thanks for being the best father any son could wish for.

Paul
