Oct.17, 2022 – April 24, 2023
Huck Cannon Hurley was welcomed into this world by his parents, big brother, Liam and big sister, Lyda with such excitement and joy. He was the ray of sunshine we prayed for to complete our family. His smile shined brightest through his eyes. When he smiled his biggest, the right side of his nose crinkled up, followed by a giggle and a happy squeal.
Huck was a precious gift of God given to us for only 189 days. We will never understand but we do not grieve without hope. We know that one day we will see him again, but for now, we find comfort in knowing that you are in your Heavenly Father’s arms and welcomed into your forever home by Gerty and many other loved ones.
Huck was born October 17, 2022 and was received in Jesus’ arms on April 24, 2023.
