  1. R.I.P. my friend Hugh….

    Jackie and I, and our entire family reach out to Janet and her family to convey our sincere condolences. Hugh, this is Denis Clarke ( Garbs) just reminding myself our our wonderful friendship… us boys from Nevis St… College Street Gut… and Upper Market Street…. and then our days in Loraine Village (Isaac Hayes Apartments).. those were the early days that set the foundation for a truly long lasting friendship. Jackie and I will miss you dearly. Be strong Janet and family. I don’t have to say it (’cause) you already know it. But, I will anyway. Hugh was a great dad, strong family man and a man of his word. Yes, great to know that we still have people like this in the world today.
