    May you find that God can deliver you from your horrible attributes to society. This man was a father and loving husband. If someone said this to you during such times as death and loss of a loved one…the hurt you would feel.

    Jack Hill was an extraordinary friend to the family of George and Emma Kelly and all members of his District. He gave the word ‘politician’ a good name. He will be sorely missed.

    I met Jack Hill when I lived in Reidsville, he owned a grocery store and I remember his Mom working there . He was always very nice and caring about his customers, I was pleased to see him in Office, I know he stood by his beliefs. My thoughts and Prayers are with all the family and friends.
