Hugh & Kathy weren’t just neighbors…they were neighbors that became family. Hugh loved a good party and he was a great host! He taught us all about good wine. He loved traveling and riding the trains in Europe. Kathy was his love and they were a perfect match. Hugh was kind, honest, caring, sympathetic and a true gentleman.He will be missed by so many and I will always carry him in my heart.
