Until we meet again, Hugh. Loved you and proud to call you our friend.
Pastor Jack Mannschreck
We will miss Hugh at Central Church. I very much enjoyed our visit this past Easter Season. His stories about living out east were fun for me, as I went to school in Boston. You could tell he was a man of integrity who loved his family very much. God bless you, Hugh. Our loving condolences to Hugh's family.
