Having just received this sad news this morning, I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to Dr. Hill's family and friends. Dr. Hill was an amazing man who touched my life in an extraordinary way. Having worked at Bay View Retirement Community for many years, I grew to know Dr. Hill as a friend.
A few years ago, he enlisted me to type his life history and print it out for him.
I still have his manuscript on my computer.
What an honor it was to do this for him! I was instantly a part of his past, reading of his travels, his itineraries and activities throughout the years, but also a part of his present, seeing this project unfold. He and his wife, Bernice had many wonderful stories to tell. I was blessed to talk with Dr. Hill often and spend quality time with him when I did. Two and a half years ago, I moved to NH with my new husband and was not able to see Dr. Hill on a regular basis. I did have the opportunity to speak with him earlier this year, for which I am most grateful. I appreciate having known such a well-traveled and brilliant man. He will be sorely missed.
