One thought on “Re-Entry Profile: When a Son Helps Lead a Father Home From Prison

  1. Great video!

    I knew Greg Hughes, Sr. many years ago and even back then, although a man with obvious troubles, inner demons and social addictions, he always had an open heart of gold and a love for his family, for strangers and life itself. Years have passed by since we last spoke or graced each other’s physical presence, but stumbling across this video gives me great relief to know that in all those years of prison, his spirits were not beaten down and the connection and relationship between him and Greg Jr. is an everlasting one!
