Our deepest sympathies to Geri and the Taylor family on the passing of one of God's faithful servants, Hugh. For decades all who attended Ward Church would see Hugh faithfully at his post in the studio making sure that the radio broadcasts of our services were available to the public. Only the good Lord knows how many thousands and thousands of people, unable to attend services in person, were blessed and likely many brought to the Lord thanks to Hugh faithfully Sunday in and Sunday out for 60 years "throwing the switch" and making sure all went well. He was a dedicated servant with a quick smile who is dearly missed.
