    Hey buddy, I’m sure things are a bit more peaceful for you now than the last few months. I won’t forget the 5:30am tee times we had, me you and Jet the dog… Such good times. I’ll keep an eye on Jackie for you OK! If you should hear that I’m coming up there, get the pair of us a really early tee time so you can kick my butt again. Miss you mate.

    Hi Hugh. So sad to hear of your passing. Working at St Peters gave me a short opportunity to meet with you and Jackie. I loved listening to your CD’s when I was cleaning your room. It was a pleasure, however brief, to have made your acquaintance. You are missed and in my prayers.

    Dear Hugh you are now resting in peace- God works in mysterious way’s
    You will always have a place in my heart with your good old Scottish humour and your big smile and always have a story to tell. You will now have lots of time for your game of golf, hope what Marguerite said is not true having no Handicap system!! This would not be good but you will overcome. We will look after Jackie for you

    Good bye Dear Hughie

    Dear Jackie,

    I am really sorry to hear about Hughie. Let me add to Doug’s comment – I know for a fact that Hughie’s got a guaranteed starting time now and there’s no waiting on the tee but wait until he finds out there’s no handicap system. I am truly sorry. God grant you all the strength you need.
    Love Marguerite

    I am very sorry to learn of your loss of Hugh. There are many fond memories of one so dearly loved. We all need words of comfort and hope when we mourn. Revelation 21:4 assures us that God will end death. John 5:28,29 promises that there will be a resurrection. May this sincere condolence help comfort you and give you hope.

    We miss Hugh for many reasons. His sense of humour, most of all; his caring and friendship over many years : the great vacations we enjoyed together with Jackie and Hugh: his zest for living: the many enjoyable golf games we played with him. We shall sorely miss him and never forget him. He will always be in our hearts. Kathy and Bob
