I am so sorry to hear of Judge Hubbard's death. I worked with him in Social Security hearings for nearly fifteen years and always found him to be a kind and compassionate gentleman. He spoke of his family with love and admiration frequently. My thoughts are with you and I hope your happy memories will help you through your sorrow. I will miss him...
