Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Mr. Hughey, Mike and Pat, I have just heard about Mrs. Hughey’s passing. I am very sorry for your loss. She was a very wonderful person and there are so many things I remember about her from my early childhood up. Again I am so very sorry for ‘our’ loss. Julia

  2. Dear Horace, Mike and Pat,

    I was saddened to hear of Margie’s passing yesterday. I want you to know how much she and Horace meant to the Hyatt children. When they talk about that it takes a village when raising children, I think they must have been thinking of the many people at Haywood Street who were an intregal part of the lives of the Hyatt children. Of all of the people who were attached to our family, none had a greater impact than the Hughes. There was always unconditional love given to all of us from the two of you, and I just want you to know how much we loved both of you. I wish I could be with you this weekend. I know you will be surrounded by those who love and care for you. Take care of yourself.
