Support Holt Family Who Lost A Son
A WMMQ listener who worked with the parents of Chris Miranda, the 17 year old Holt High School football player who was killed in a car wreck Tuesday night, asked me to pass this along:
My friend says "the Miranda's are some of the finest people you could hope to meet. Hard-working Cuban immigrants who LOVE their adopted country. Chris and his buddies were, and are, everything you would ever want your own teenage boy to ever be, all fine young men with bright futures."
A fund was set up for the family to pay funeral expenses and help with travel expenses for family members coming to the services. The quotes below come from that page:
And on behalf of the family, "... they are overwhelmed by all the prayers and support from family, friends, community, coworkers and people who they have never met"
"It's a nightmare no one should ever experience", is what my WMMQ friend also said. It makes me think, too, of the high school classmates I lost in similar such wrecks so many years ago - just teenagers driving around on a summer night.
