Lillian Gracie Hux, 12, died Saturday, March 11, 2017. She was born April 22, 2004, in Brookhaven, to Kevin and Glenda Hux.

Miss Hux was a student at Loyd Star Attendance Center, and was an active member of Faith Presbyterian Church, where she was a member of the children’s choir.

She was an extraordinary child who had a sweet and gentle spirit that lit up the room. She loved music, Mexican food and singing. Children’s choir was her favorite part of Wednesday night church.  She also loved playing with her friends, of which she had many.  She expressed her love by giving sweet hugs that always warmed the recipient’s heart.  Her friends and family were supremely blessed by being part of her life.  She found happiness in everything, especially vacations with her parents and friends to Chicago, Seattle, the beach, zoo, parades and mountains.

She was put here by the Lord to show us His grace, love, and joyful spirit. When she prayed for you by name in her nightly prayers, you were humbled and honored to be recognized by a soul so pure of heart.  As Jesus said in Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God.” Lillian lived with the Lord everyday and He allowed us to see His glory through knowing her. We rejoice in reunion with God in Heaven where she is now wrapped in his warm embrace.

A family, a church and an entire community of friends will be better people, more loving, more gracious, and understanding of limitations and contributions of people with special needs because Miss Hux walked hand-in-hand among us. 

It was undeniably evident that she adored her Mom and Dad. They shared a very close and loving relationship.  All were enriched by her beautiful life and the wonderful impact she had everyone blessed to be her friend.

Survivors are her parents; her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jessie Hux; her maternal grandmother, Amelia Guerra; her aunts, Iris, Joyce, Kayra, Indra, Wanda and Sherry; her uncles; her cousins, Candace, Aurora, Stephanie, Braden, Cade, Jesse, Jon Luc, Brady, Jessie, Danny and Cam.

The family would like to thank Dr. Braden and all the medical staff that helped take care of Lillian throughout her life.
