Airfare Expenses & Donations

I am writing a tribute to my first born son, Roger Hughes. He passed away of unknown causes on January 5, 2018. He was in Philadelphia, Pa visiting his daughter, Emma, who he loved with a passion and that's who is in this picture with him. He loved the Lord and had a calling on his life. He shared the Word  with most people, and was generous with his actions to help people, a servant at heart. He loved to sing, play the guitar, and loved the Beatles. He also loved Praise & Worship, many times on a road trip we would just sing our hearts unto the Lord, and I would see big tears of love flowing down his face. I'm not saying he was a perfect son, and I wasn't a perfect mother, but we loved each other. We had good times and sad times, and this is a very sad time for me and his Dad. His Grandmother passed away about a month ago, too much sadness.

Roger was self employed and did not have any life insurance. We need funds to pay for Air and Hotel expenses for his daughter, so that she can come to the funeral and spend time with her extended family. She is 15yrs old, heart broken, and will miss her dad.

The funeral will be this week in Columbus, Ga. Donations in lieu of flowers will also be accepted.

Sylvia Pittman-Meyers will be in charge of the funds.
