Memories Timeline


  1. Just want to say that I am sorry to hear about Mr. Mayhugh. He was a really good person. I didn't know him that well. I enjoyed taking care of him at the Nursing Home.

  2. Our sincere condolences to you both. It's tough to see another member of the "greatest generation" leave us. We owe them all so much, we can only thank God for the honor of being their descendants.

  3. " Uncle Sam" was a favorite uncle while growing up in Princeton, Indiana. His hospitality over the years when I visited Princeton will always be remembered. It has always been a pleasure to share in holidays at Christmas and family reunions. I have warm memories of special occasions shared with the Mayhugh family across the years. "Well done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord."

  4. Dr Sam: Sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I cherish all the good times you and I had together. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. John

  5. Sam and Arlene and all the Mayhugh family you have our deepest condolences on the passing of your father. Remember all the good memories you had with your father through the years. From what you have told us he must have been a great person and came from a fastly fading generation. You are in our prayers. Take care. Bill and Lorene

  6. My wife and I appreciated the short time we had to visit with Dad in mid-November. Dad lived a full life and will be missed. Our prayers are with him and know he is it peace.

  7. So sorry to hear of your loss. Our parents are our best friends. Diane Wheatley partee Member of PHS class of '64

  8. David, Gayla and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your Father. I have never seen a video online and I thank you for sharing it. It was a nice tribute. Judy Hoffmann Moore

  9. Sam, Charlie, David, Gayla and families, We will always cherish times spent with Uncle Sam and Aunt Kathern when we visited Princeton after moving to California. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Keith & Katie Kintner

  10. Papaw was a very important person in my life, I enjoyed all the summers I got to spend with him and Mamaw. Here are a few things that only he could say or do to bring a smile to my face…"watch that first step"! I am sure most of the miles he put on his oldsmobile were from running to the grocery store for a few missing items that mamaw needed to finish cooking her feast. Thank you for TV snack… Thank you for loving me. Marquita


  12. David, Gayla, & Family, I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. May God sustain you each day with His mercy and grace. Ron Owens

  13. Lindy, Gayla, and family. So sorry to hear about your loss. He was a great guy and I remember him when I used to come by your house when we were in high school back "in the day". I miss you guys and hope to see you again sometime.

  14. I remember Sam from being a member of the Nazarene Church in Princeton Indiana where my husband was the minister. Sam was a great Sunday School teacher and was very involved with the Gideon Organization passing out Bibles. He was a person you could depend on in any situtation. My love and prayers go out to the family.

  15. So sorry to see the passing of your dad. I remember him fondly the many Sundays at the Nazarene Church where my grandparents took me when I was young. You had great parents; a feature to be proud of. Again sorry for your loss.
