    I am so very sorry for your sudden, tragic loss of Bill. I am simply a neighbor but have enjoyed a few very special chats with Bill as I was out walking my dog and just stopped to chat. I am extremely blessed for having met a very interesting, special soul. My thoughts are with you all at this time.

    Roloff family,
    Sorry for your loss; may Bill fare well on his journey. I am the daughter of Hermann Henfling who worked at Hilltop Sand and Gravel; as a young girl I often heard the name Bill Roloff. The attached photo is of some of the Hilltop gang; my father is seated at the desk in front of his birthday cake.
