I am so sorry to hear of your loss - your family is very, very special and Mr. Hugh will be missed by all who knew him.
My dear Faulkner Family (Mrs. Marion, Celeste, Elizabeth, Deborah):
I am just speechless! I'm also filled with so much tremendous grief & sorrow in the loss of your dad, husband, & my beloved, respected friend, Mr. Hugh Martin Faulkner! It feels like I have lost my father (my 2nd dad) all over again! I am so very disappointed, that I could not have had the priviledge & the shear pleasure of a recent visit with him, before he left us all. Maybe I would wish tell him myself how much I loved him, or to just to say "thanks for everything you've been to me". Words cannot even begin to scratch the surface of what this great man has meant to me & my life.
I know that my feeble words cannot heal a heart that is crushed, or return a loved one that has been lost. Yet, I just want you all to know of my earnest love for each of you! I stand, side-by-side with your family, in my own mourning of this great loss. As I've heard it said before, "I guess GOD just needed him more up there, than we do down here". And, after all, I'm quite certain that the ALMIGHTY has his hands full, tonight, tomorrow, & the next thousand years, with all the vintage monkey business that good, Ole Hugh will muster! . . Not to mention his good buddy, Lance Grissett spurring him on!
You will remain in my prayers, Faulkners! RIP, my great friend, Hugh! I love you partner!
Words are simply not adequate to describe how sorry I was to hear this news. My prayers will be with you in the coming days, weeks and months. Love to you all!!
Liz, I am so very sorry for the loss of your Dad. My heart goes out to your whole family. Much prayers are sent your way.....
Barry and I extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
