To All the Hill Family
We are the Brannon's. We were neighbors to the Hills when they cam South for the winter. We are so sad to hear of Rollie's passing. We will miss his smiling face and his sharp wit. We will miss his burn barrel each week stopping to chat. He was always helpful as a neighbor;. All the Snowbird group was sad to give up bowling ,He was the life of the party,.him and John Bearne. Rest in Peace Rollie. We will see you soon. May the Lord give you comfort Onalee..Love Bill & Oma Lou
