Family surprised with Christmas lights

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.— More than six months ago three children lost their father in a motorcycle accident.  Friday, to make their first Christmas without him special, Cool FM radio and Gamache Land Scaping decorated their home with Christmas lights.

The Brownlee family drove to their home while friends, family and neighbors waited to surprise them with their decked-out home.  When the family first saw their home, they showed big smiles and even shed a few tears.  They expressed great gratitude to everyone involved.

The family was nominated by 16 people for the annual event.  The night was a fantastic way to kick-off holiday cheer for a family missing a memorable father and husband.
