To The Hill Family,

My deepest sympathy of the loss of USDM Christopher Hill.

May you find comfort from the beautiful memories of a life well lived.

No words can truly erase the pain and sorrow when you grieve a loved one. But in the days, weeks, months ahead, I pray our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, wraps His loving arms around each of you and wipe away each tear that will be shed for Christopher.

I shall keep the family in my continued prayers.

Yours In Christ,
