SIBLINGS SHATTERED BY THE SUICIDE OF THEIR SISTER, GET THEIR WISH GRANTED TO HONOR HER IN A SPECIAL WAY
We received a wish via our website from a woman by the name of Theresa Moore for the siblings of Riley Nichole Hughes. This beautiful picture captured happier times for the family.
Riley (far left in the photo) was adored by her family, classmates and teachers. Sadly, on June 27, 2017, 17-year-old Riley Hughes took her own life leaving her family devastated and grief stricken.
Theresa wrote to us with a special wish for Riley's siblings. As Riley was a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, Theresa wished for us to get Riley's family tickets to the Philadelphia Eagles v. Dallas Cowboys game in Philadelphia. Attending this game is something Riley always wanted to do with her family but never had the chance to. As the Eagles and Dallas are a huge NFL rivalry, tickets are rarely available for this game and if they ever are, they are completely unaffordable.
As we felt that attending this game in memory of Riley would not only be a unifying but a healing event for her siblings who miss her, we knew we had to make this wish come true. So, with the help of our incredible friends at the Philadelphia Eagles organization, the entire Hughes Family will be in attendance at the Eagles v. Dallas game on December 31st. We are certain Riley will be there in spirit as well.
