Wake Forest 27587 Magazine | Summer 2017 9 there's a law-office administrator named Kim Hill. You see, her husband's grandmother, Evelyn Hill, long ago "topped strawberries" — i.e. cut the green parts off — of the ice-cream-bound fruit inside those creamery walls. "That was her job when she was 15," said Hill, who today lives in Wake Forest. As for Heller, today he's a textbook wholesaler and sports broadcaster whose voice echoed through playing fields at some 2,500 games, including as the home stadium voice of Clemson University, among others, and lives in Elgin, S.C. But it's those long-ago days in Cary that keep re-surfacing. Case in point: the time Keller and his brother added a half-gallon box of peppermint ice cream to their parents' Pine State delivery order. "The ice-cream block was as hard as a rock. We attacked it with a knife and a hammer, sort of chisel style," he said. "Shavings and chunks of it slid across the counter, some onto the floor where'd we wipe them off and keep eating. It didn't matter. It was ice cream; it was Pine State." But it didn't end there. "We had to finish the entire box before my parents came home and knew we had it," he said. "I remember fighting the ice-cream headaches and cold burn in my adolescent chest. Oh, but it was so good."
