I always looked up to Hugh. We went to school together ,he was alittle ahead of me. We called him Hughey back then. I shared industrial arts with him,under a teacher named Mr. Jenkins. Hugh was gifted, he stood out in class because he was very talented. He was an all around good guy. I've always felt Hugh help me and my family. I'm glad we'll be buried in the same cemetery. I look foward to seein him again. Eddie Hutson
