Dear Hugo and Laura,

We are so very sorry for your loss; Uncle Hugo was not only the life of any party, but he was so full of love for his family. I will cherish our visits together and never forget how he seemed as interested in my little ones as if they were his own grandchildren! He was a wonderful man- any would be lucky to know him, and very few others lucky to have him as family! He was so proud of you both and of Nicole and Hugo, and every one of their endeavors and accomplishments; he loved you all so much. You were always there for him too. He will be so very missed. We love you all too, so very much. Hugs and kisses and prayers for your peace and comfort in knowing the love you have shared with him meant so much!

With deepest sympathy, Ria, John, Italia & Isabella

We were very sorry to hear of the passing of Hugo. He and his wife were

an important part of our neighborhood

in Clinton Hills and they will be missed. I will never forget those days

when he was riding on his lawn tractor

and singing to himself. He enjoyed those moments and he seemed to enjoy life. Please accept our condolences.
