"" Dear Arthur " a gentle soul of the past, you poped up in conversation today my friend, amongst friends at the shooting party, a memorable reply " Ah yes the jolly old chap at mendip ", and those words are true. I still miss your presence at the grounds. A place where 8 years ago today my fiancé and I engaged in one of the most memorable days of our life's so far, our engagement party. Ps I still haven't made an honest lady of her yet, but I'm working on it <3. Like others so numerously have said a great man who always be remembered....computers might not be your friend mate but all of us you knew back down here certainly are! Remembered always, Arthur x"
"To our Dear Friend Arthur, always in our Hearts & thoughts ,we still talk about all the fun & good time we shared with you ,you are always at our gatherings ,Remembered always with Love & frondness ,Honor & jim OZ"
"Dear Arthur, The world has changed so much since you left us-so much insecurity and sadness. The Light that you left is still shining brightly and it shows in your dear daughter, Danielle's face. We will always miss you, dear Arthur, and our love for you will never die. Xxx"
"4 years ago someone decided they needed you Arthur to make their world a better place. No doubt you have done this but this one misses you. A true gentleman with a brilliant sense of humour. It was a pleasure working with you.."
"Dear Arthur: much has happened in this world since your passing, but the most outstanding thing of all is seeing how your wife Sharon, and your daughter, Danielle have carried you everywhere with them. Sharon will always miss you, but knowing you're beside her in spirit, she's faced difficulties and still manages to smile-and I know it's because of her love for you. Danielle is a beautiful young lady now-and I know you are so proud of her, as she is of you. We miss your joking, your presence, yet seeing Sharon and Danielle, we know you're not far away. Sending you love and prayers, Sheila xxx"
"Dear Arthur ,our dear Friend & great mate ,Happy Birthday Arthur ,you are always in our thoughts ,out here in OZ ,Jim & Richard Gould are always reminising about the the things you got up to as you were growing up & all the fun you had ,we fondly remember you with Love & affection ,Honor & Jim"
"Years ago Margie and I were headed to the UK and our neighbour Jim Stevens said,"You must stop to meet my friend Arthur Hill". I arrived at the Mendip Shooting Ground and asked for Arthur. After a brief conversation he called out, "You won't believe who this man's neighbour is". I left feeling that I had a new friend, one who was quite a character. Thank you Sharon and Danielle for organising this memorial tribute."
"Still miss you 3 years on. the things you told me and the mick you took out of my husdand and father inlaw. Miss you so much allways in my heart x"
"Arthur you are always in our thought ,I cant believe its 3 years since your passing ,you would be so proud of your very Beautiful Daughter Dannielle,she has taken on your roll of keeping intouch with us here in OZ ,I no you will always be beside her & Sharon ,we miss you in our lives ,but we will catch up for a chat one of these days"
"I was helping Arthur in the grouse butt, When my wife Joan tripped over some cable and went base over apex on the Vitasc layout. I thought Arthur was gooing to have a stroke, He collapsed laughing. He was still in hysterics when we picked her up. He reckoned that she tripped, staggered for a few seconds and then went down like a sack of spuds. I got a rollicking for telling joan off, which made him laugh even more! His sense of humour was wicked.He is still sorely missed by all my family."
"You may be gone but you'll never be forgotten!"
"Still missing that great sense of humour 3 years on Arthur."
"Dear Arthur, you are still thought of and remembered with such love and affection. Danielle has blossomed into a lovely looking young lady, and I am sure you walk with her everyday. Her love for you seeps through every part of her being, and reaches us over here in America. The world is sadder without you in it, but you are in a better place with no more illness or death, a place where we will all meet again one day. Sharon goes on with life, daily, but there is a void in her life which only you could fill. It is hard to see her without you at her side. Yet you walk with her too. To Arthur, a man well respected and loved, to a nephew who was so respectful and loving, know that I will never forget you. God Bless, Sheila xxx"

"Matter is neither gained nor lost. So Arthur is still here. A little in all those fortunate enough to have met him. So you'll be with me on the next hunt bro."
"It Does not seem possible that 2 years have elapsed since you left us. I miss the mickey taking and the constant moving of goalposts!"

"If only more people were like Arthur it would be a better world I will always remember the good times, there were no bad ones, I always loved the stories of days gone by. Especialy over a bottle of whiskey or gin."
"Arthur passed away much before his time. He was wonderful as a father, a husband, a nephew and a wise friend. He was comforting and conflicting, but most of all, protective. He walks beside us, and inside our hearts. Arthur is not dead to us, he is just behind a door we haven't found yet. But we will.....someday. He is lovingly missed."
