I’m so sorry to hear of Kenneth’s passing. I remember Tricia talking about him and her mother so much and how much she loved them. I hope you can take comfort in knowing he is no longer sick and in pain.

I remember always faking sick in middle school just so I could walk to grandma and grandpas house. I’d always find one of grandmas famous “sick slushees” and grandpas orange slice candy jar waiting for me when I got there. I’d be covered up with a blanket and me and grandpa would always fall asleep watching tv it was the best! He was a good grandpa and he will be missed by so so many.

Mr.Hughes, rented my husband I his home for several years.He immediately felt like a father figure and was a good man who was very kind with us and always had a smile. He was someone we loved and respected. He spoke lovingly of his family often. Thank you Mr.Hughes.RIP. God bless you

Ken was always worried about me most of the time. He was the one that was sick a lot. I always told him not to worry about me, that I'm fine and he needed to try and get better for me. He really tried. He always thought that he was going to get better. He never got discouraged, never got depressed. He was always the same Ken till the very end. Always thinking of his family. I'm going to miss him a whole lot. Life is not going to be the same without him for a lot of people including me. Love you Kenneth dale Hughes. Rip.
