    When Gail asked me to look up some stuff on the internet for Hugh Gammon, I was surprised to find his SSDI entry & this obituary so soon. I found a family which included a Hugh Henderson Gammon with parents Richard b.1878& Mary Henderson plus grandparents Richard b.1825 & Mary Whatley. But cannot connect Hugh J. with them. Sorry. I sympathize with your loss of a loved parent & wished to do something pleasant to add to your memories of him. Be assured that he still loves you just as he did when he was on this side of the veil.
