Matilda loved spending time with her family. She especially enjoyed going for walks and sitting outside watching her babies play. She loved listening to music and often played the guitar. One of her best qualities was helping others. She was kind and sweet and always talked up a storm to anyone she encountered.
Thank you to all the doctors and nurses for all the help, support and care they gave our mama bear.
We will miss her dearly.
