Hillary was a fun-loving, full-living girl who was the light of her family’s life. Her days were a social whirl full of activities with her mom by her side. Some of the friends and groups Hillary especially loved were Best Buddies (ELHS and Conn College), Special Olympic teams (MI and CT), High Hopes, Pfizer cafeteria co-workers, Marshalls co-workers, Life Skills Class, Blissworks Yoga, the Brits Trivia Team, Groton Zumba Gold, and Hip Hop Dance Extension.
