My deepest sympathies go out to all of the family. I will continue to keep Mr Huey and the family in my prayers. Mr. Huey was the greatest person and best neighbor ever. I will remember him always with great appreciation. *Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
