Hugh Jones, soft spoken, a man of little words, humbly with a grin akin to a smile. That's whatcha got. That's what I'll remember, besides the Love he shared with his wife. He spoiled her with LOVE. Our families came from Arkansas together, we grew up together, he was born the day before my brother Perry. The two grew up together in school. Perry reflected it all when he said:
"Yeah man, that dude Hugh was a real cool dude, he'll be missed"
