  1. Connie & Autumn…Please accept our sincere sympathy with the loss of your husband and father. We haven’t seen you often since the closing of the Ellwood City Hospital but, we still remember your wedding day and the day Autumn was born. Hutch was over the moon (for both events). Memories are always something you can hold onto and, eventually, they will become even more precious. May God be with both of you in the days ahead. May He give you the strength you need, and the peace that comes with knowing Hutch (and both of you) are surrounded with His love. Love to Both of You from Bob & Donna Stevenson

  2. Connie and Autumn, I was so very saddened to hear about Hutch. I have not seen him for a number of years but what I will remember most is how he always made me laugh. His wit and quick quips were sure to bring a hearty laugh anytime we gathered at Paulette’s for the yearly Labor Day picnic. May those memories and the many others you shared bring both of you peace and comfort in the days ahead. GOD BLESS and {{{HUGS}}} Please let me know if there is anything I can do…
