i am sorry for the loss of Mr Fitzhugh, he was a great man. I felt for him through his illness, but I know an illness was never this man.. NOT MUSHY , but a strong Godly man, he was a blessing to each of us .. even though he acted like we were a pain, being a YARDAPE, was a compliment, I am praying for his family to find comfort knowing he's with God, and I pray he always lives in your heart, he will in his students. RIP Mr Fitzhugh, you were a once in a life time blessing.. May his family always feel his love
