Remembering the Life of Hudson Lais

By Jeff Babineau (GolfWeek)

Revelation 21:4: He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.

Five-year-old boys are meant to kick cans, tug puppy tails, chase bubbles, scrape knees and jump into every mud puddle they can find. At 5, little boys are the apples of our eyes, with big futures that have no limits. They will be firemen, and astronauts, and baseball players. Sometimes, even super heroes.

They simply aren’t supposed to be laid to rest, their work on this earth already completed. Ah, but God chooses only the best ones from his earthly garden.

At noon Wednesday in Bentonville, Ark., family and friends will gather in Keypoint Church to celebrate the life of young Hudson Lais, whose short time here ended March 10. Hudson’s dad, Randolph “Barrett” Lais, 31, is in his sixth season as assistant coach for the Arkansas Razorbacks golf team. Hudson had a difficult life, one in which he could not talk or walk. He spent his days in a wheelchair and required 24/7 care, but that didn’t keep him from being the most joyous little soul you’d ever meet, and from laughing infectiously, and bringing unbridled joy to others.
