Not sure what to say?

My heart is deeply saddened and I extend my deepest condolences to all of the Hughes family members. Although I did not spend a lot of time with Uncle Sterling, I could see that he was a very loving and caring person and that he was also loved in return. I only wish I could have spent more time in his presence.

Gods Garden

God looked around his gardenand saw an empty place. He then looked down on earth,and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you...


Having had the pleasure of knowing your father, he was always so cheerful and pleasant. I feel your lost and always keep in mind that he is in a better place. I would imagine that he would say to you and the rest of the family...

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to do and see.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we shared so many years.
I gave you my love, you can can only guess how...

The Hughes family,

May God give you strength and he will guide you through the loss of your loved one. Our prayers are with you and your family.
