    We built a home adjacent and south to Mulheron’s. Clair was the first to welcome us. ????.
    Met Hugh shortly after we moved in.
    Reminded my of my brother who returned from Vietnam.
    Good souls, but very conflicted.
    RIP Hugh. All the demons are gone. Say hello to my brother Nick. You will have much to talk about.

  2. Russ and Mandy Phillips

    I was saddened to hear of Hugh's passing. I was good friends with him years ago! Haven't seen him for several years. He was a good man and he will be missed. My condolences to his children and family. RIP Hugh. I will have to make a trip to Sacred Heart Cemetery to pay my respects. I just heard of his passing and missed the graveside service. So long Hugh, see you on the other side. I will pray for your soul! God will take it from here!

    Sean and Heather, I just learned of Hugh's passing. I was a year ahead of Hugh in school. I lived just up the road from him, and we hung out together a lot. We had a lot of fun together. His Grandmother and mine were sisters, I believe. I didn't see him much lately, but I will miss him. You have my sympathy.
