    Linda,
    Mom and I were so sad to hear of Hugh’s passing. The last time I saw him was at my Dad’s graveside funeral out at Blanche ten years ago. I always thought a lot of him and your Mom. My Mom and yours were working at the bank together when your Dad first met June. Mom said he was plastering the ceiling and a big glob fell off his finishing tool and hit your Mom on the side of her head. That’s how they met. 🙂 I’m sure you’ve heard that story before. My Dad thought the world of your Dad, too. Again, so sorry for your loss.

    Too many sweet memories just to pick one. Loved him since I can remember.
    A strong, good man. And he always called me both names Sherry Jayne. I’ll miss the sound of his voice.

    Dear Linda,
    Sorry to here about the loss of your Dad.
    I remember when Uncle Hugh would pick me up and put me on his shoulders. That was as high as I ever was. He was the biggest man in the County , not just in stature but in character.
