I have so many fond memories of my mother from childhood up until her passing. She was an inspiration to everyone and touched so many lives. She inspired me to work hard by her example. She was a woman ahead of her time, but traditional in so many ways. She was the first woman on the athletic board at Saint Joan of Arc, first woman custodian in the South Lake School System and always the first one in line for a sale. Thank you for being my mother, friend, shopping buddy, amazing grandmother to my children and wonderful mother in law to my Husband. You will never be forgotten and I hope we can all continue to live our lives by your example.

I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH MOM!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING !!!! GIVE DAD A BIG BEAR HUG FROM ME.

I became a part, of the Hughes family, when I was in high school. Two years later, Gerry and I, were married.
I truly love this family, and everyone in it. I always have. Loretta and Bill, were like parents to me, and I love them both, dearly.
As parents, they were the most caring, and loving, of any I have known.
I have never seen a love, between two people, as strong as theirs.
After our marriage ended, eight years later, mom and dad, still remained a part of our lives.
Though, over the years, we drifted apart, that love, always remained.
Mom, I have always loved you. I hope you know that.
I know, you are at peace, reunited with dad, your one true love, and your children.
Always in my heart,
Ginny

We have known the love, support and generosity of Mrs. Hughes, Mr. Hughes and their family for many years. Their family meant everything to them and they were so proud of all their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I remember many visits with Mrs. Hughes as she listened to me while folding the perpetual loads of laundry for her large family offering me guidance and support in my youth. Her reunion with Mr. Hughes will be joyous for them both.

Our hearts go out to all the family. You have many wonderful memories to cherish and share.
