Baby Landon's Funeral and Cremation


22518462_1500963221.6711_funddescriptionOur son, Landon James Kenneth Hughes, passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on Mon. 7/17/17, age 2 months and 11 days.

He left behind not only us, his loving parents, and his large extended family, but also his twin sister, Athena, and 2-year-old big brother. We are all grieving terribly, and having to post this request for financial help at this difficult time is beyond humbling.

We have some savings, but unfortunately not enough to cover the sudden cost of having to lay our baby son to rest.

The funeral home is graciously giving us a discounted price on their services, but we still need around $1,700 to cover the cost of everything, including the memorial service, cremation, flowers, transport, viewing, etc.

We are humbly asking for any monetary contributions, whether you knew Landon personally or not, to help cover the cost of laying him peacefully to rest.

Anyone reading this, whether you're able to contribute or not, is invited to Landon's memorial service, which will be held Wednesday, August 2nd, 6pm, at Seahurst Beach in Burien, WA.

There will also be a viewing at the funeral home, the night before the service, for anyone who would like to attend.

Feel free to message us directly with any questions, or to RSVP for the memorial service.

Thank you, and much love, to anyone taking the time to read this, and if you are able to contribute, and/or attend the service, we simply can't put into words our gratitude for your humbling generosity.

Even at only 2 months old, Landon was such an awesome, curious, fascinating little dude, and our hearts ache that more people hadn't had a chance to meet him before he passed, just so his memory would persist that much longer....we have never hurt this much in our lives....

Thank you,
Alex & Marina

Any leftover/extra funds received we will donate in Landon's memory to the Tears Foundation, a local non-profit which assists needy families with funeral/burial expenses for deceased children:
