I am so sorry about the loss of Hugh. He was such a great guy and I will miss seeing him and getting a hug. Now he will be with one of the nicest ladies I knew Betty she was such a sweetheart too. Let me know if you need anything. Love Diana

Uncle Hugh was one of the nicest, most considerate people. Every time I saw him he was smiling and had a hug for me. Even though I hadn’t seen him since Mom passed away, I will miss him.

If there is anything I can do, Barb and Sue, just let me know.

My deepest sympathies to all of you.

Ruth Ann
