Haven't seen you in a while, always heard kind words about you though. You said if don't keep moving you'll stop and you didn't want to stop. Nothing but the utmost respect for you. You have that rest which is well deserved. Take your place with the Lord, you definitely earned it.

Mr Hill , you will truly be missed I worked with you for 27 years you came a year before and showed me nothing but kindness. I am going to miss our long talks at the office, last time I saw you I came to your home to pick up keys and the nurse was there wrapping your feet the I called two days later but no answer but I found you at Saint Thomas Mid Town and spoke with Ms Gladys. I enjoyed all the years we worked together here from Service Solutions to now KIMCO, I remember you saying you had to keep moving because if you didn’t life would be short lived who would have known you were so right, I looked at you like a father figure not only a employee. Mr Hill you lived a full life now God has called a Angel home , take your test and as bad as I going to miss you I know you are in a better place you and sister, you always spoke of your sister and the love you had for her . I miss you and I remember what you would always say to look a here Yolanda you have to take care of yourself, I heard you and I am listening, take that rest.
