Condolence: Hugh was not only a great mentor to me, but also a great friend. He's the reason I'm where I am in life today, and I do and always will think of him as one of the greatest men I will every have the honor to of met. He will be missed.
Condolence: Dear Sonja and family, My deepest sympathy on your loss! Hugh was one of the finest persons I ever had the privilege to know. I wish I could be there to celebrate his life with all of you. My thoughts are with you. -Gene
Condolence: Dear Sonja,
I’m so sorry to hear about Hugh’s passing. Please know that I’m keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. May the Lord give you peace and comfort now and in the coming days.
I love you my friend.

Vicky also remembers Hugh taking her to the New York State Fair, in the early 1970's, and having a real blast!
Hugh and Sonja were always an inspiration to us regarding their long and loving relationship. As we are coming up to 42 years ourselves, you always gave us hope that friends can be married for a long, long time!
We both hope that we will still find the time to visit some more with Sonja in the near future. We pray for you all and hope you will speak fondly of our limited times together at his celebration of life. Love you all...Vicky and Jim
We both are really sad and sorry for your loss. Hugh was always a brave man, wonderful husband, father, grandfather, Uncle and friend (to Jim and I). We remember fondly our times together when we were all stationed in Virginia. Our children playing with your children in that little mobile home...all that screaming while we played cards...wow! :D Time has really flown and we regret we didn't get more times to visit and see the girls grow up.
Vicky remembers well tracking Hugh's travels, along with her father, and Hugh's brother - Ed Mullen, through the jungles of Vietnam during his war time tours to ensure he was safe and sound. We were all very happy when he finally came home.
