so sorry to hear of Hugh's death. I knew him thru Highway to Healing. I also liked to see his smiling face at the Enrichment Center and hear his kind words. Will miss him.

Dear Ginny,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Hugh. Jimmy and I were so happy to sit near you at JHBC. Zane also enjoyed talking with you when he visited us. I lost Jimmy in OCTOBER 2018. Perhaps they are enjoying telling each other stories in Heaven. Can't you just see them now? May God bless you and your family with many wonderful memories. Love, Daphine Tolliver

I was in a Bible Study group with Hugh and Ginny a few years ago at New Life Praise Church. I was so blessed to get to know them and spend special time with them. Hugh was such a great Christian man and helped so many people. He will be missed, but I know he's rejoicing in heaven today. Praying for peace and comfort for Ginny and the rest of the family.

We've been blessed to know Hugh and Ginny for about 15 years, and they've been such good Christian friends. He always had something encouraging to say and was always so joyful and upbeat and willing to take on whatever anyone asked of him. He will be greatly missed. We are thankful for the privilege of knowing him and our hearts and prayers go with Ginny, Sally, and Debbie during this time.

My mother thought so much of Hugh. He was so kind to always put the morning newspaper on her front porch when he walked. Hugh will be greatly missed and such a thoughtful and Christian servant. Our prayers are with Ginny and the family.
