As a young child Mr. Hunt was like a 2nd Dad for me. I have so many fond memories of special holidays that our families spent together. The many fun games of Yatzee spent at your diningroom table, the wonderful food you prepared and the warm welcome I always felt when I was around your family.
Most of all I appreciate the wonderful friends that you and Bob were to my parents. Even when my Mom passed away yall still took time to contact my Dad to make sure he was getting along ok. I know that my parents felt yall were more like family than friends.
Mr. Hunt, as I always called him, was a wonderful family man He loved to help others and I do recall many times that he help out with car issues we were having. He had a very good heart and was always prepared to help out a friend. He had a good sense of humor and would always make you laugh.
He will be missed that is for sure. My Dad said he felt like he lost his Best Friend. Bob was like the brother my Dad always wanted. They shared alot of fun times together tearing things up and fixing them again.
We will all miss himbut know that one day we will see him again.
We love you guys
