Dear Angels,

It's with a deep sadness that we share the news of the death of Danny Hill. Danny died Wednesday morning with Susan and their daughters at his side. He had recently been diagnosed with cancer and developed complications from it and from treatment he was receiving for it.

Danny's funeral will be Friday, June 8 at 2:00pm at All Saints' Episcopal Church on Tybee Island. A "visitation" will be held (in typical Tybee fashion, as Susan put it) the following day, Saturday, June 9 from 2-4pm at the American Legion.

I'm sure many of you will want to attend one or both events. If you are planning to go to the funeral, remember that All Saints' is small, and they have even less parking than we do, so you might want to get there early, and you definitely want to carpool if you can. We are waiting to hear if they need help with food for the reception; if so, we will get that word out as soon as we have it, so that our Angels here can contribute.

If you were here when Danny and Susan were, you know what a kind and gentle soul he was, always with a quick smile and a hearty laugh. Please hold Susan and all the Hill family in your prayers in the coming days.

Rest eternal grant to Danny, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen.
