Thoughts and prayers are with you

Matt and family we are so very sorry for your loss. We are thinking of you all during this time.
Many blessings to you and the family.

Margaret, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so sorry for your loss and for the loss to the Wooster community. Lud was so kind to me when I came to work at BioHio/OARDC. I will miss his counsel, kindness and optimistic approach to everything.

Lud was so generous. He helped me with business and I watched him help others as well. I will miss the sparkle in his eyes. Thank you God for Lud Huck! Rest in Heaven.

A consummate gentleman who always saw the positive in any person or situation. The world will be a little less peaceful without Lud's calming presence.

Remember the good fight

Margaret, You and Lud helped me in ways I could never express. I rememeber working at TJs and Lud sat me down and talked about my full time job at the village network and decisions I was currently dealing with... you guys helped me adjust to Columbus life by sending me a bunch of restaurants to go to and things to do. You made what seemed to be a difficult time in Munich life/difficult adjustment so much easier. I'll never forget our wonderful talks about life's Journies and when I came to your house to meet the puppies and talk! I will miss Lud so much. You guys were such a blessing in my life!

So sorry to hear about your loss. Lud was such a great person and was always so nice to us. You may remember us. We used to stop by your house with our daughter, Gracie after we completed her adoption from China. She used to love to ride on the swing in your yard.
We'll keep you guys in our prayers.
Bill, Sarah and Gracie Blincoe

Please accept my sincere sincere condolences. May you find comfort in warm memories and coming promises. Revelation 21,3.4
