  3. Sandra, David, and Hilton I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Jack. I enjoyed the times he went with me and Uncle Billy to visit Uncle Pete in Rocky Mount. I lost my dad Rosby Hopkings in 2012. I know the hurt you must feel.

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all now and in the days to follow. May you be surrounded by God’s peace and by his perfect love.

  5. We are very sorry to learn of Johnnies passing. He was always full of life and always left us with a funny joke and a “God Bless you.” He was a dear husband, father and friend. He will be greatly missed. God will take you through this time of mourning. Harriett, Ray and Kellie Shirley
