To Shirley and Family: We are touched by Hubert being a part of our lives and we share in your loss. Although we have all lived distances far apart during most of our adult lives, the fond memories of our childhoods bring smiles to our faces as we recall family times. Hubert will be missed and we send our hugs and prayers to each of you. Cousin Susan Carona, and my husband Bob.

I have fond memories of Hubert and his siblings and other cousins when we were at Grannie Adams house. I know he will be missed and my thought and prayers will be with his family as they feel the void in their livers without him.

How sad we will be as a neighborhood now without Hubert. If it was warm enough outside you could count on him being out on the front porch as you drove by or doing yard work or mowing, but always smiling and waving. Everybody loved Hubert is what I told my mom when I heard of his passing. May God bless all the family in this time of sorrow.
