  1. Marion and family Thoughts and prayers are with you at this time, Hugh was a great guy, good memories Boots Roosendaal

  2. My deepest sympathy to Hugh’s family and friends. As we think about our loved ones that have died, and how they leave an imprint on our heart,we find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. I hope these scriptures I’m sharing with you below will bring you a bit of comfort now and always when you think of Hugh. Acts 24:15- There will be a resurrection Revelation21:4- “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. I am truly sorry for your loss.
