Verna and Larry,  so saddened to see Hoddy's obit.  When Anita died I lost any connection to a lot of people.  I used to think of Hoddy as my younger brother and Larry as my little brother.  A lot of good memories flooded my mind.  My love goes out to both of you and your families.  Betsy

I will always remember Hoddy for the times we traveled thru Maine sightseeing whenever I would visit. Many good times with him. He always was one who was helping others. We grew up together as kids and renewed our friendship when we weresenior adults. He was a true friend. May Hoddy rest in peace.

There are so many memories, I find it hard to begin. I want to thank you for all you did for my son, Jon, over the years. Thank you for taking good care of him and bringing him a sense of joy and wonder in the world every weekend for a long time on your road trips. RIP Hoddy
