So sorry to hear about Dr. Hughes. He was the doctor for 2 of my children from about 1983-1995 and I learned a lot from him. My children have grown to be responsible and caring adults.

Dr Hughes was a great father in law and a wonderful granddad. He will be missed more than words could ever express. When Mark and I presented him with his first grandchild he said he wanted to be addressed as “doctor-grandfather-sir”. We love him.
