Even though almost 39 years have passed since I last saw him, I will always cherish my memories of Bubby as a happy, fun loving person who enjoyed life to its fullest. I was shocked and dismayed to learn of his passing, and express my deepest sympathy to his family.

Although I have not seen Hinton in years, I was shocked to hear of his death. We were childhood friends in 'East End' and attended the same schools. I share your loss and send my deepest sympathy. May God bless you and comfort you.
