Little Billy,Marty & Eric: We are so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a loved part of the Hubbard family and memories of him and your mother and you boys when you were young and we all would be at Mom's on Sundays are still vivid in my mind. Life is full of twists and turns and not everything is rosey. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I hope only the best for you. I remember your Dad saying one time that he always whistled to keep from crying. Let us keep whistleling. Uncle Dan and Aunt Bea
