I am so sorry to hear about Hugh. I worked for him for 6 1/2 years. He was one of the nicest and kindest people i know. Such a pleasure to have worked for. I have since moved to Florida, so will not be able to attend the funeral. All of you will be in my prayers.

Hugh was one of a kind--the sweetest human to be found. He had a servant's heart and soul and always a smile for everyone. And he also had a great sense of humor. His jokes always made you laugh. He will be missed greatly. Oh what a friend he was to everyone.
