In the Basehor-Linwood High School auditorium April 25, Russell Clark and Sarah Hopkins hug Amber (left) and Vera Gaffney, the younger sister and mother of Joshua Gaffney, who died in a car accident in 2008 as a Basehor-Linwood Middle School eighth-grader. Clark and Hopkins were the 2012 winners of a scholarship set up by the family in Joshua's memory. Joshua would have been a member of the BLHS 2012 graduating class along with them.
