Our sincere condolences for Shirley’s family. She was among the first people I would see while delivering mail. Shirley always had a big beautiful smile. She always had something nice to say to help my day. Long story but we shared a cat named Thumper. But Thumper choose to stay with Shirley. RIP you so deserve it.

So sad to hear Ms Hill passed away. She was so good to me, always bringing me chocolate to the office. I loved her smile when I took time to assist her. She will be missed in town. God Bless her family and friends.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family in the loss of Mrs. Hill. She led a life that we should all be envious of; she was honest, loving, trustworthy, unostentatious, down to earth and just a joy to be around. I know family and friends will miss her terribly as will I but, I’m a better person for having known her and will cherish my memories of her always. May God’s love and comfort be with you now and always.
