Everyone liked Frank Hill for his many excellent traits of
character. Gentle and kind, open hearted and free, a gentleman at all
times, a friend that could be depended upon, he will be missed from the
busy walks of life and above all from the home of a christian mother
whose life was devoted to her beloved son’s welfare.
