I am grateful for the time we spent together as I read to him as a Hospice volunteer. I also enjoyed my conversations with his wife Mariland. I pray that the soothing peace that is promised from the Comforter will touch the family.

I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Huston on two occasions, some 30+ years apart. I will forever remember his gentle smile and manner. God bless Marilyn and family. Huston is home at last. Praise the Lord.
