1 thought on “Hugh Edward Moore, Sr.”

  1. To Mitzi and all the Moore family, I am saddened by the passing of your dad/granddad as I remember my parents fondly talking about him as I was growing up living in the Zion Rest community. I know you will miss him as there is a special place in our hearts that only a dad/granddad can fill. I pray you find peace through God’s comfort and with all the sweet memories you hold.
