Hugh and Kathy-
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your father. I would accompany my parents to Peter's Feed to get items for the garden. I also remember your family attending mass at St. Rose. What joy he must have had with the grands and greats. Savor the precious memories.
Regards, Treasa Skiles (Struble)
So very sorry to hear about Mr. Burns death.I was one of the neighbor hood kids on Sea Vale St.Always at their home!! My Sympathy and Love to all of the Family May GOD Bless You
How beautiful, just like this wonderful man! May his gleeful memories dwell in your hearts.
My dad (Milan Popp) and I knew Hugh well. My dad was a gardener and I was his helper doing about 35 lawns a week. Hugh was the “go to guy” at Peters Home and Garden for our lawnmower repair and nursery stock. I often saw Hugh three or four times a week. I was young starting at 8 years old until college. Hugh always recognized me and called me by my name. No other business person I knew did that. I remember one event where we were to buy some bare root roses and Hugh took the time to teach me about the grading of roses. “Always use Grade 1 Ken. Other stores will sell lesser grades but they do not do as well as Grade 1” Hugh said.
Hugh was a great guy and had an influence on me. Kenny Popp KENPOPP@COX.NET
We don't often get the chance to meet our friends' parents but we had the enjoyable pleasure of meeting Hugh's Dad on a trip to Denton. We had heard so much about him from Hugh and Mary, I felt like we had already met.
I won't forget Hugh Sr joining Mary and me on a shopping trip to the Mall, several hotly contested croquet games on a sunny afternoon, a box of chocolates, and the ever present twinkle in his eyes. Hugh Sr, you will remain in my memory box of stories to be lived again while sitting at Hugh and Mary's kitchen table.
Sweet grandpa Burns.... You will be missed more than words can say.
Grandpa was my greatest " pen pal". He never missed a birthday or any special occasion. I always knew when I received mail from Grandpa because it was the most colorful envelope in the mailbox. He would illustrate and color pictures for me on the envelope. I have kept all my letters. Also, always tucked away in the cards was a piece of Juicy Fruit chewing gum. I love Juicy a Fruit gum and it will always remind me of Grandpa.
Hugh Lee Senior and Junior shared a warm, positive disposition that casts light on all around them. I remember Hugh senior for his sense of humor, his deft and loving touch with plants and people, and his rather formidable croquet stroke in several games played at Hugh Junior's yard in Denton, Texas. His atoms have rejoined the universe; his spirit shines on.
Hugh and Mary,
Always enjoyed seeing pictures of his bright beaming face on Facebook. Wish we could have met him and feel ,in knowing you ,we also knew a little of him. Sorry for your loss and send our prayers. Heaven has a new resident and bet there is a grand Irish welcome home celebration!
Thank you for remembering my Dad in this guest book. And thank you for those moments you shared with him in life ... And now share with us. God bless you, and God bless your families.
