I wanted to thank the hundreds of people who have visited this site and have left heartfelt comments and well wishes for my mother and I. I cannot say how much I appreciate the stories everyone has shared about the games, rulebooks and simply times in which they had the opportunity to meet John Hill. I want to thank Duke Siefferd for his amazing letter he wrote describing my father’s character and sense of humor. It touched everyone who has read it.
I want to encourage everyone to continue posting those awesome comments. I want to assure you they do get read and I have been replying to each of them as early as possible, so you know just how much they mean to both my mother and I, because she sits next to me and reads them too. At times, we tear up at some of the things people have said.
Many people knew my father as a war game designer, but he had many other facets to his life. He was a government military analyst, a railroader, and most importantly (to me anyways), he was a family man. He was a son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, as I have two grown children. To learn more about the other facets to his life, you can navigate to the Additional Links page to view a PowerPoint (PPT) I put together shortly after he passed in preparation for his memorial service we held in January of this year at one of his favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. It is the last link created on that page.
If you wish to connect me with me via social networks, feel free to click on any of the icons listed, because I always enjoy making new friends and new connections.
Thank you again for all your support and incredible kindness and sweet sentiments. Our family finds comfort in knowing how many people adored and loved my father.
