Hubert was a patient at the home health company I work for. I work in the office and didn't get to meet him in person, but still, he was one of my favorite patients. He always had a story to tell and a joke or two. I will never forget his laugh. If I didn't answer the phone when he called, he asked for me because he knew I would help him. He was funny, kind and full of spunk. RIP Hubert! You will be missed!
