Please accept my deepest condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugh and Margo were very longtime, loyal clients of Richard's Barbershop (and the place I used to work). I hadn't seen them since before the lockdown. Growing concerned I googled Hugh and the obit came right up. I can't tell you how bad I feel. He was a good man.

I couldn't have asked for a better Father. He was always there for me and my family. He always had a joke to tell and made all of our visits so memorable. You will be missed Dad. Rest in peace, and give Mom a big hug for me.
