Cunningham was fatally wounded last Thursday when he was gunned down at Berkshire Manor Apartments. Now friends and family only want to remember the best times with Hugh. At tonight's candlelight vigil at FAMU's Eternal Flame FAMU staff, including President James Ammons, friends, and family shared their thoughts and best memories of Hugh.

Darlene Cunningham, Hugh's Mother says, "And then as he got older, he began to like, tear things apart, put them back together. I mean, things that I couldn't fix. And, he just was so different."

Fellow students have started a foundation for money to be donated towards a college scholarship in memory of Hugh Cunningham, who died at age 21. Hugh Cunningham Senior, the father, also came up at one point and told everyone who came, that he didn't know how many people's lives were affected by his son.

    Lecron, I personally am not trying to bring GOD into the deceased! Think about what you said, "we are trying to bring GOD into these peoples lives after they are dead" they don't have life when they die. I'm personall praying for the family to have strength to make it through this and now I'm praying for you!

    I think it's a shame that all you people posting here try and bring god into these peoples lives after they are dead or in prison, what a joke.

    This to will pass. The dead in Christ will rise. Be encouraged and know that to die in the Lord is to live in Christ. With time all hurt and sorrow heals. Hugh Sr. I know you don't remember me but I'm Joyce from Philadelphia baby sister.
