“Hug Him Once for Me” by Erica McClure. I wrote this song when our 5 1/2 month old son went to sleep for his nap on earth one day and woke up in Glory. A friend of mine who also lost a son, made the video for me. I pray it is a blessing to someone today. If you have any questions please go to www.greenroadbaptist.org
