Hudson and his family are members of Grace Community Fellowship of Ottawa. Hudson was a lively young boy who was always ready to help get work done either on the farm or with his dad on his construction projects. He would start most jobs with a resounding “Let’s do this” and had recently taken up the phrase, “yep” whenever you asked him something. If one thing could draw him away from his farm life it was either Peppa Pig or Dr. Pol. If either was on TV, he was enthralled for the whole time. On road trips Hudson’s favorite moments were when they came upon road construction. He would name all the equipment and was so excited at the progress they made in building the new roads. Hudson’s fierce love for his family, especially his parents and siblings, will continue. He is now getting to know his big brother in Heaven. Together, Hudson and William are watching and waiting to see the farm and construction be completed by their loved ones here.
