Book of Condolences

Randy SladeHugh was for many years, my father in law. I grew up with him as a mentor and a friend. We had many things in common and loved fishing together or just having a tea and a conversation. He meant a lot to me. I unfortunately divorced Kelly in 2006 and I lost that connection to him. It’s a large whole in my life as he was someone I respected very much and he was always a great man to lean on for sage advice. I am sorry he is gone but happy he is in peace. Miss you Dad and always will carry a piece of you in my life. You carry on in all of us and will always do so. Catch that big laker for me and smoke that pipe. Love you very much. Randy
