My wife & I just returned from our winter sojourn in FL on Saturday and learned of your father's passing. I did not know Pat & Janet long, as we moved to Carillon Lakes in August 2009 but we enjoyed their company and were graciously welcomed by both of them. Please accept our condolences and our prayers.
God Bless,

My family and I are so sorry to hear of Pat's passing. He just called us a few weeks ago and told us of his illness. Bless all of you

Dear Hughes Family,
I only knew Pat briefly as a patient. It was very obvious how proud he was of his wonderful sons and their families. Despite his diagnosis, he smiled when he spoke of you all.
I'm so sorry for your loss.

Pat was a great guy. We worked together for several years at Fermilab
in the village machine shop. He was a hard worker and an excellent machinist. Pat always had a joke or funny story to share. He will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to his family.

Hughes "boys",
We remember both your parents as being VERY funny people. Your dad was always at the DC games, cheering you boys on. He will be missed in many ways. Last Fall, We planted the bulbs from your mom's service and now Janet's flowers are in bloom. Both of them live on in you and the many grandkids. Blessings,
