Reflections for Corporal Charles William Hill

Charlie, I still have vivid memories of when You, Kuchi, and I were working out in the APD weight room two days before your death, and you telling us about skiing in Killington, VT, with your son.

I will never get over that feeling when the "officer down" call went out, and then being notified of your death after shift. All I could think of was of your family.

March 22nd and May 15 are two days that these memories come back most.

RIP Charlie.

When I learned about this tragedy, I just went numb. Chuck and i lived next door to each other in North Babylon, New York. I knew his parents, his sister, Dorothy,
and his girlfriend, Ginny, who would later become his wife.I watched as they fell in love with each other. I was in their wedding party in 1971. I miss you Chuck. No passage of time heals this wound.
I never met your sons, but, I know how very proud they must be of their father.
To Ginny- I want you to know that I think of your late husband and wish that
I could change the tragic events of that day. Ray Richardson
