Death leaves a heartache that is hard to heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Recall the funny ones, the momentous ones, the touching ones and the great ones. May God comfort your broken hearts and give you peace, strength, and hope as you cope with the death of someone so special to you.

I remember working with David at the defunct F. E. Wise and Sons Hardware store in Aultman (Greentown) in 1978. Dave was quite a good guy to work with (he was in charge of parts for lawn, garden, farm, and dairy equipment). I know he will be greatly missed by family, friends, associates, and customers.

The Upper French River Cottagers Association sends its condolences to Bud Smith and the entire Hill family. The Halcyon Cottage is a well known landmark on the river, and many cottagers have had very close ties to the Hills and Bud.
