JOHN STEPHEN HUGHES SR. IN HIS ARMY UNIFORM 1957

One year has come and gone and the pain of missing you my Daddy has not decreased as so many said that it would. I have taken one day at a time hoping for those “easier “ days as once again, so many said would come. I have found out, after a year that this does not exist. Thinking of you everyday brings great happiness with lots of smiles, but also great sorrow with many tears, for you are not here in body. I long to give you a hug and a smile or even pass by your chair and lay my hand in...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE


I know you are absent from me in body, but to be absent from the body is to be PRESENT WITH THE LORD

PRAISE GOD FOR THAT.

But that is not stopping me from celebrating your Birthday
Because you are always with me in spirit, ANY TIME I call,

YOU ARE THERE WITH YOUR SWEET LOVING SMILE.

I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU IN BODY.

ALWAYS YOUR WIFE
Norma

WHAT CAN I SAY, NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT I DONT THINK OF GRANDADDY. HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. HE OPENED HIS DOOR TO ME AND NEVER ONCE TREATED ME AS AN OUTSIDER. HE HAS SHOWN ME WHAT A TRUE MAN IS AND SHOULD BE. THE WORD "QUIT" NEVER EXISTED IN GRANDADDY, "A JOB TO BIG" WAS NEVER AN OPTION. HE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE MY GOAL OF WHAT A HUSBAND AND A FATHER SHOULD BE. GRANDADDY I MISS YOU AND I LOVE YOU. YOUR GRANDSON

Thank you Jesus for the loan of a very special spirit, Steve, my Best Friend, Helpmate and Husband.
He was always there for me whatever the need. I believe he was a Good Samaritan. I always joked with him and said he would knock you down just to help you up.
I had him on loan from Jesus for almost 43 years.

Lord, I give you Thanks, Praise and Glory for that time with him.

Steve,
You are always in my heart and always on my mind.
I Love...
