    So sorry to hear of Hugh passing. I live a couple houses down from him and would see him everyday setting in his garage always waving at me. I loved to see him in the yard in the summer and would go over sometimes and we would just talk about whatever. Always such a nice guy to just talk to and such a great neighbor. You will be missed my friend, this next summer will not be the same without seeing you in your chair. Rest in peace, you and your entire family are in my prayers.
