    Rest in Peace Dearest Hubba, I will truly miss hearing your voice on the other end of the phone when I call to talk to my sister Judy and you telling her " it is your bad sister" we will meet in the blueberry patch on the other side. You will be truly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing you. Rest Easy. Much Love Sherri A. 😘
