Dear Geneve and Polly,
Read of Hubert's death on the internet. You all are related to me but it has been a long time since we were together. I am Pearl Reese's daughter and lived with Aunt Babe in Newberry. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Sincerely,
Virginia Reese Porter

Sorry to learn of Mr. Hubert's passing. I have known him fondly for over 50 years when I worked as a student for businesses where he delivered fuel products. He was a "super" nice person and will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him
