Dennis and family,
I am sorry to hear about the passing of your father. My mother, Dorothy Bow Hill talked of him fondly. He was one of her cousins that was her age, as most were much younger, so she enjoyed visiting with him. I only met him a couple of times, but remember him as a very kind person.

I wish you all wonderful memories to put a smile on your faces.
cousin Marilyn Hill Allen
