On several sites and newsgroups there were rumors that Ed Hill had passed away. Fortunately this is only a rumor.
This is from his Stamps partner Ed Enoch:
I don't know how this terrible rumor about Ed Hill passing away got started - but Ed Hill is at home resting and doing very well. He had a stroke on March 4, 2005 and was released from the hospital on March 7th.
The doctors told his family that Ed Hill has lost his short-term memory. They said he may eventually get it back - but it may take 3 months - 6-months or even a year or perhaps never. It just takes time to recuperate.
He is doing well and anyone that wants to send Get Well wishes may send them to:
P.O. Box 1471
Brentwood, Tn. 37024
Thanks for your concern - Ed Hill's family will appreciate your prayers.
