Remembering Lindsay Hill
May 23, 2011
***Editor's Note: The following comments were received following the death last Thursday of Lindsay Hill, AgriBusiness Director for U.S. Farm Report and AgDay Television...
#1: My husband and I were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ms. Hill. We watch your show each Sunday morning here in central Maine and we were shocked to hear about her accident. Tho Lindsay was only with your program for such a short few weeks, we would like to let you all know that we will miss her bubbly personality and beautiful smile. She has touched us all!. It is so sad that she has been taken from us at such an early age. Please know that we keep her family and her co-workers in our thoughts and prayers. Carol and Pete Metivier - Corinna, Maine
#2: I'm not a farmer but being in Iowa with small children I'm up early so I sometimes catch parts of U.S. Farm Report before The Today Show. I turned on the TV this morning and caught the tribute to Lindsay Hill. I don't know if I ever caught any of her reports but her "philosophy" was beautiful and I plan to try and live by it myself. I am very sorry for her family, friends and co-workers loss and hope that you all will use her philosophy to get through the mourning process.
#3: It was with great shock then sadness that I learned of your loss this morning. I'm sure all of us faithful viewers join together in offering you our sincerest condolences and sympathy. While I knew nothing of Lindsey's career prior to joining the Farm Journal team, it is apparent that hers was a voice that will be truly missed for all of agriculture. I was really looking forward to more great work from her, since it was obvious that she had some great ideas on how she wanted her part of the programs to be broadcast. We'll be praying for her family and all of you as you attempt to recover from this tragic event. Hers truly was a life cut much too short. R. Kent Wagoner - Parma, ID
#4: The loss of Lindsay Hill, although her time on your staff was brief, will certainly be felt. She won an old curmudgeon like myself over the first week simply because of her competence and the knowledgeable way she interviewed and interacted with the panel in the opening segment. The tribute to her on your show this week (it airs early Sunday morning on our local station) was extremely well done. It displayed a heartfelt emotion with grace and dignity. Thanks. Darrell Vande Hoef
#5: My sincerest condolances to the family, friends and co-workers of Lindsay. With the short time she worked on the farm report, I was impressed with the intelligence and insight she seemed to have about the serious issues of agriculture. She came across as very personable and professional in her communication. I was looking forward to hearing her on the program for a long time to come. With the impression I got of her personality, I can only imagine how much she will be missed by those who know her best. Indeed, life is short!My regards and prayers for the family. Tom Lingbloom
