I only have one Wednesday want today, and it might be one that is hard to obtain. I wish I could take away the pain that the Higuchi family is feeling right now due to the loss of their son Ross.
I never knew Ross personally, but my younger brother went to high school with him, and it seems that a great deal of the Smoky Hill High School community knew him. My brother described him as a kid who was always happy, and he always put a smile on the faces of those around him.
It is an awful and unfortunate loss for our community to lose such a young, talented and happy individual.
I’d like to ask everyone to keep the Higuchi family in your thoughts, as they go through one of the hardest times in any person’s life.

Here are the stories from the News:
The friends and family of Ross Higuchi have set up a fundraiser to help pay the medical and other expenses. If you can, please donate to help out and take some of the stress from the family who has already lost enough. To donate click here.
