My condolences are with the family of Mr. Hillman. I enjoyed his visits at the dealership. He would make me laugh quite a bit. May you rest in peace Mr. Hillman. You will be missed dearly. God will take care of you.

I have many memories of Uncle Kenny, but the one that I remember the most was my first meeting Uncle Kenny and Aunt Minerva. Uncle Kenny had a huge giving heart. He always wanted to give his best. I remember a family trip to Myrtle Beach and a very long walk along the beach with Uncle Kenny and our son John who was in grade school at the time. And mostly, I will remember our last conversation we had together not too long ago.

Dad, I know you are up in Heaven having a great time with Mom! You will always be with me in spirit and I will never forget the past 10 years we shared so closely together. You went through a lot recently and believe me I felt awful that you had to go through what you did. I now know that you are now living in Paradise and that your worn out body has become whole again and you are no longer suffering. We will see each other one day again, but until then I will cherish our memories and don’t worry I will be okay as you and Mom raised me well. God loves you Dad and so do I!

Love your son,

Kenny
