Memories Timeline


  1. I met the Hughes family in the Fall of 1974 when I began my Sophomore year of high school, and found my wonderful life long friend…Pam.

    I still remember the 1st time I saw Mr. Hughes. His daughter Kim (who was 3 years old at the time) was playing in the front yard amongst newly planted trees on a beautifully manicured yard. Growing up in the military as the Hughes’ children did, I remember thinking “I bet he won yard of the month every time.”

    I’ve been blessed the last 40 years to be included in many Hughes’ celebrations. Through all the good, and sometimes sad occasions, Mr. Hughes was always there with his love and support, and of course what I enjoyed most, his hugs.

    And while it’s going to be very difficult to think of this world without him, I know that in Heaven, he is with his wonderful wife Tommie, and surrounded all of his loved ones who passed before him.

    Until we’re all together again…..

    All My Love and Prayers,
