Hugo was a wonderful, caring person, whom I consider a privilege, and an honor of having known. If Hugo ever told you something, you could take that to the bank, because Hugo's word, was as good as gold; he always made good on what he told you. I send my condolences to Mary, Milo, Marlene, Merlin and Marlys, and pray that our Lord Jesus Christ, will lessen the burden of loss; and bless you all, with the knowledge that Hugo now resides in Heaven, with all the angels and Saints, our Almighty God the Father, and our Lord Jesus, savior of the world.
