"It's been over a year now since I've last heard your voice or seen your smile. All the calls have of condolences have been stored away in a box...and no one calls to check on you anymore. But every second of the day I miss you! The hurt and pain has not gone away. Each day I'm forced to learn how to live without you in my life. It's crazy how this site was started over a year ago...but your children knew nothing about it! I'm sure there has been several honors or acknowledgements given to you that we know nothing about. I can tell from the comments who truly knew you and those who just wanted to post a comment for recognition. Daddy you will ALWAYS be honored and never forgotten in my book. I love you more than words can ever express! My role #1 guy...I salute you!"

""To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord."  My deepest sympathies go out to not only Soror Pugh, and family, but to the many people that LT. COL Pugh touched by his loving kindness and never ceasing giving and caring.  I know this world would be so much better if we all had a calling to help people just as this man helped me.  I have to believe that when COL Pugh looked into the face of Jesus, Jesus said, "Servant, job well done.""
