My Story

Joseph Hudgins is the son of Debora Bettinger and Kenneth Hudgins and the brother of Richard, Christopher, and KC Hudgins. He passed away on May 4th, 1997 with a brain tumor. We first learned of the tumor when he was 2 and thought he had gotten rid of it, but unfortunately it came back and spread throughout his brain. There was nothing doctors could do. Joseph was the most caring and loving boy you could ever imagine. He loved Space Jam and loved baseball more than anything. His laugh would lighten your worst day and if you knew him you loved him with everything you had. No matter how sick he got or how bad his treatments were he lived, laughed, and loved.
