My great friend Chris Hughes passed away yesterday leaving behind a world of people who loved him. He was a great friend, a son, a brother, an uncle, a husband, but most of all, an incredible father. He was taken from us yesterday in an accident that even he would have been shocked by. He has 4 children, Alix, 19 is a senior in high school, who was suppposed to go to the senior prom last night, and graduate in 2 weeks. She is going to college in September. Jett is 16 and a sophomore in high school. Ethan is 14 and graduating from middle school and will be a high school freshman in September. Jayne is 12 and in 6th grade, and Chris' little girl. His wife Lisa is an amazing mother, the most willing volunteer, easy to ask a favor or offer anything she has to help someone else. She is the most thoughful mother who always wants the best for her kids and everyone elses.
How do you put a price on losing a father and husband? How much does it cost to raise a family, send kids to college, pay bills? I don't have these answers, and I'm sure Lisa doesn't either. I and the Hughes are greatful for all your generosity. Anything that can help put a smile back on those faces is worth more than you can imagine.
