Thank you for your thoughtfulness and prayers. I had missed your comment until this morning. Knowing that others are thinking of our son as well as all of the other soldiers is a great comfort to us. Thank you for the wonderful things you and your group do.
Your presence, and that of the other PGR members at our gatherings are always welcome, and a blessing! It is one more "silver lining" that helps cover the dark cloud that looms overhead.
Ruth and I want to thank you folks for taking the time to be there for our families. It is time that you folks could be spending at home with your families.
But then again, when you are with us, you ARE with family!!!
On a personal note, I will always treasure the pin you gave me, and I will always treasure the memory of seeing all the American flags and PGR members at the funeral home as we came over the hill that day. It meant the world to me, and immediately lifted my spirits, and my chin. For that, and your service to our country and our families, I can't thank you enough!!!
May God bless you one and all,
Kermit and Ruth Hugo
