To Ms. Hill and Amy (my stepmother) My heart and blessings are with you and your family especially during your time of mourning. It was sudden to my knowledge, I definitely would have been there had (Bill's children) been notified by family. We may not be blood relatives but Mr. Hill always treated as his own grandchildren. I did speak with Mr. Hill by phone a few months ago and am so grateful I was able to do so. If I can help feel free to call me. I am always available and willing to do whatever I can to be there for the family. I love you all, miss seeing you all. Sincerely, Mindy & Abigail Hartness
