    Prayers to the family – Hubert was always my buddy.

  2. To my cousins Diana, Rhonda and Randy; I am so saddened to learn of Uncle Hubert’s passing. I know how is feels to lose someone this year; I lost Carol in March. I was hoping to visit Hubert sometime this Fall, but this Covid has prevented all my travel. I will always remember how warm and caring your father was when my dad passed. He and dad were as close as brothers could be and respectful of each. I will always remember Hubert’s homemade ice cream churned up in the back yard. Our family always looked forward to visiting you on our vacations to Tilden. God Bless Hubert and I hope he is greeted by the rest of the family in heaven
