Tom, I am SOOO happy that you saw my message and were able to connect to Facebook and see all of the posts!! I couldn't help but instantly share on this page and on Canyon's Facebook page after I saw yesterday's episode. I'm tickled to hear that your mom is going "viral". Yes, I definitely remember your dad as the voice of Canyon as well!! I have several funny memories of your dad! He was so wonderful and I bet he is smiling so big from upstairs watching all of this go on. :-) All my best to you and your family!

I always enjoy the Ellen show and am touched by the pieces she does on what I would consider everyday people. I saw the first time Mrs. Huckaby was on and hearing her name made me think of my all time favorite teacher ever, Mr. Huckaby from Canyon High School!! He was AMAZING and I still think of him all these years later. Imagine my surprise when they brought Mrs. Huckaby back and she started talking about being widowed and they pop up a picture and there was a picture of sweet Mr. Huckaby with that smile I will never forget! Thank you, Ellen, for what you've done for this and countless families and thank you for bringing such a great memory and huge smile to my face, and to the Huckaby family, there are several posts on Facebook's Canyon High page where people share fond memories and stories of Mr. Huckaby. I too have lost a parent and know the pain and sadness it has caused for myself, my brother, and my dad. I feel that this act of kindness towards your family is not a coincidence, I think it is just a small token from Mr. Huckaby to remind you guys he is thinking of you all and it is great karma that some of the good he did for so many is being repaid to those he loved most. Feeling good about life right now. :-) <3 Here is a link to the facebook page with comments and memories of Mr. Huckaby. https://www.facebook.com/groups/CHSalumniCC/1015350558724...
