    I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. and Mrs. Hill in 1982. They ran Radnor Plumbing at the time. They were kind enough to take a beginning, struggling salesman in and “under their wing”. They were so nice. I still remember Nellie sitting at her desk, so pretty, professional and always “Dressed for Success”. I have had the pleasure to know and stay in touch with the family for almost 30 years. I miss Mr. Hill and now will Mrs. Hill as well. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I remember Mrs. Hill as the mother of my best friend in High School. I always thought she was so beautiful and she had a great sense of humor. I lost my own mother in 2004, so I know how difficult this is. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
