Hubert’s final wish to be able to donate his body to science was realized through Science Care. No memorial service will be held at the present time. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you consider organ or body donation.
A special thank you to the staff of Tallahatchie General Extended Care and Hospital for the compassionate care they have provided.
