JoAnn and Family, we are so sorry to hear of Hugh's death. He was one of the nicest men I have ever know. Growing up at Hillcrest Baptist Church he was the one adult who always spoke to you and always had that smile on his face. I remember the good times we had at church and what an impact he made in the Brown children's lives. He was truly a Godly man and always exemplified his love for the Lord!! Know that we are praying for you all and pray that our Lord and Savior will give you strength and healing in the coming days. Our love to you all...Lynn & Barney Harris
