My condolences to Dawn and the rest of the family. It was my pleasure to have been Mr. Hutchen's mailman at his barber shop for much of the last 37 years. I will never forget the smile on his face when I saw him , because he enjoyed his work so much. I hope his family will take comfort in knowing that many other people will also remember and miss his smile .
