    I am leaving a comment in reference to Helen Hill for her son David A. Hill. I knew David. We both attended the Leominster First Baptist Church. I remember when I found out he was drafted. I told my mom that David would be killed over there. She asked why I felt that way. I told her because he is such a quiet and kind man, he couldn’t kill a fly let along another human being. In 1970 I ran into Mr. & Mrs. Hill in a restaurant. I said hello to them, but lost for any further words even though my heart went out to them for their precious loss. David and I enjoyed a few conversations after church and Sunday School. I have never forgotten him.
