  1. I am so sorry for your loss of “Dub”. He was a member of our Cushing High graduating class of 1955. We remember him as a warm and friendly friend with loads of talent. God will be with you as you mourn the loss of him and I know you have lots of wonderful memories of him to live with you forever.
