    Mrs. Huffman, so sorry for your loss, Mr Huffman was the nicest man, and best neighbor we had on arch st. When he moved away in 1997 the neighborhood was never the same, he would help everyone with any problems we had, he taught me how to work on cars in the mid 1970’s, how to repair them with the proper parts, and even some short cuts, when you didn’t have the right parts. i would often come in his house to talk with him, back then, he would offer me a plate of food, and join him to watch his favorite show, Sanford and Son, really going to miss Mr Huffman,

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss Gloria. Comfort and strength in God’s future promises of hope in something better-life without suffering and pain
