Hugh Huffman's Mother's Day Trip to CA

Hugh Huffman emailed me this last week. Hope you enjoy!

Here are some photos from our Mother's Day trip to CA. Hugh L. Huffman, Sr. was my father. I am Hugh L. Huffman, Jr. and am in the photo reading to my grandsons, Jonah (2.5 yrs.) and Aaron ( 4.5 yrs.) Knuth. My wife is Pat and is holding Tamar (9 mos.). Rachel is our daughter and Nathan is her husband. Jonah loves yummy yogurt and Aaron is always seeking to help, in this case with the painting. The Knuths live in Sebastopol, CA; Pat and I are retired and live in Lexington, KY.

I fondly remember the summer reunion where you and your sisters swam with our daughters, Rachel and Emily at the motel pool in Shelbyville. Emily lives in Birmingham, works as an Account Exec for Clinique and is single; she has a horse and two Jack Russell terriers that keep her busy!

Thanks so much for maintaining the blogspot for the family! Give our love to your family! Hugh (& Pat) Huffman

Hello Huffmans!

After the email about the Huffman family reunion being postponed until 2010, I thought a blog site might be a good way to keep in touch. This is a free site. There is no cost involved. So, when you have news to share with the Huffmans, pictures, or videos, email me at ashleyb306@hotmail.com. I'll be happy to add your information for all the Huffmans to see.

By the way...I'm Ashley Brown Williams. I am one of Betty Lynn's daughters (one of the twins).
So, I'll start off with a quick tribute to my grandmother, Grace Huffman, who passed away last Thursday. The memorial services were held on Sunday, and I thought it truly was a testimony to her life. It wasn't a sad event. Grandmother was 91 years old, and her old body was just worn out. She had made it clear she was ready to go. She had a strong faith and a desire to be with her Lord. The preacher at the service talked about her willingness to serve in the church and her openess to talk about how God had gotten her through so many things in her life.
She left her family an example of a Christian life that I would do good to follow.

Here's Grandmother with my little boy, Sawyer. This was taken November 2007.

On another personal note, my husband, Walker, and I found out yesterday we will have another little boy in November. Sawyer is 16 months, so we'll have two little boys very close in age! We're excited.

I included this picture just for fun. This is Sawyer last week.
