UPDATE: A GoFundMe site has been set up to help Hugh’s family with travel and lodging expenses so that they can be here with him during this crisis. You can access it here. (Search the site for Hubert Skanes-Cady)
If you have communicated with anyone from NorthstarMLS in person, or by phone/email, that was very likely Hugh Trimble. We often call Hugh the face and voice of NorthstarMLS because of his work with everyone on Rules & Regulations compliance. We are extremely sad to report that Hugh was involved in a motor cycle accident this week and is in serious condition. His family is maintaining a web page for him at the CaringBridge site with ongoing updates. You may access Hugh’s page here (you will need to register your name and email address on the site). You will find his page listed under “Hubert Skanes-Cady.” Click the “Journal” link for updates.
Hugh is an exceptionally friendly, funny, gregarious and family-loving man. We have had many calls and emails from MLS subscribers asking about his condition. His role ensuring rules compliance is not always easy (or popular), but Hugh is always approachable and fair with this function that is critical to the integrity of the data you depend on every day. We have faith in Hugh’s ability to fight his injuries and pray for his recovery and strength for his family.
PLEASE NOTE: The family greatly appreciates everyone’s concern but asks that you not make phone calls to the hospital. All updates are on the CaringBridge link noted above. Thank you.
