A wish comes true

Robert “Bubba” Pitman, third from left, gets his wish when he meets star Denver Broncos cornerback Roland “Champ” Bailey, fourth from left, at Mile High Stadium in Denver last week. Pitman, 18, suffers from bone cancer and made the five-day trip to Denver as a guest of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Joining him were, from left: his grandmother, Joanie Wallen, his brother, Ricky Pitman, 21, his mother, Charlene Pitman and brother, Colton Pitman, 22. The family returned Saturday to a warm welcome home from friends and family outside Needful Things store in downtown Charles Town. Charlene Pitman said a highlight of the trip was Robert being hailed on the stadium scoreboard with the words, “Welcome Bubba — Denver Broncos biggest fan.”
