I will always remember Mr. Hill as a kind and gentle person. He was smart, funny and easy to be around. He and Mrs. Hill were a natural couple that were meant to be together. Mr. Hill always offered kind words for everyone and I enjoyed the few times we spent together when I visited with Penny, his daughter, and my long time friend. He will be missed by many...

For some reason this is what came to mind.
Anxiously awaiting the birth of Dara in the waiting room.
His sweet smile!!!! Such a special granddad, father, father-in-law and over all a good man.
