    So sorry to hear of Hubie's passing. I will miss his smiling face at the care center. He used to help the ladies prepare the snack time treats and always proudly said he did the dishes afterward.

    Our family knew him way back in the days when my mom and dad owned Slama's Superette. He has always been one of our favorites.
