Dear Kathleen and family,
I didn't know Hugh very long but I will always remember our conversations. We shared a common interest in aircraft and vintage watches.
Please accept my sincere condolences.

I got to know Hugh because of watches at a local NAWCC meeting years ago. I knew I had a friend. I had met one of the finest Christian men I had ever known. I appreciate every encounter I had with him. I know he was a Blessing in so many lives. I am very thankful that I was among them. God's Peace And Grace To The Family Of A Wonderful Man.

Our deepest sympathy to the Darrel Henegar family. I remember as a boy first meeting Darrel on the Old Home place by Harvey and Donna Letton....
I will never forget he had the tallest stilts that I had ever seen.....
We also remember the hours that Sis. Kathy and Bro. Darrel spent with Daddy when he was so sick...
You have our love and prayers.

Kathy and family,
Words cannot express the
feeling of such great loss that I have at the passing of your husband and father. The world seems just a little bit darker just knowing that I will never hear his voice or talk to him about his grease powered ranger or his watches.

Hugh surely was one of the most Christian men that I have had the pleasure to call my friend. I know that you and his children are comforted
in the knowledge that he has gone to be with our savior Jesus Christ and that someday he will be there waiting to greet you all.
May God bless you and give you the strength and understanding to bear this loss.

We are praying for you all.
