I wish to express my sympathy for the loss of your mother. Although I did not know Ms. Hillman personally she seems to have been a very active lady. As a Frankfort community volunteer I know that folks like Ms. Hillman helped make Frankfort the kind of place it is today. As you reflect on fond memories may you draw comfort from knowing that God cares for you-1Peter 5:7 and he will indeed comfort your family during this difficult time.
