Dear Betty and family - I was sorry to see in the newspaper about your husband's passing. Sadly, we don't take the time when all is well to keep in touch with friends and family. May God bless you and yours at this difficult time.

Cecelia, Am so sorry for your loss, of your father. Was not able to attend your father's funeral service, this afternoon, but, so enjoyed viewing all of your family photos, on this Gipson Funeral Home website, via the video format, with music, etc. Your father was certainly a full-fledged member of "The Greatest Generation!" Thinking about you, Cecelia, and, may you experience God's Peace and God's Comfort, during these days. God Bless You, Cecelia, and, all of your family! In deepest sympathy,

Cecilia, I am thinking of you and your family during this sad time. I lost my Mom 2 years ago and it is a difficult time. The written tribute to your Dad was very special. Now I know why you were always so kind in high school and where you got your wonderful smile. Our parents are with us always, even if we can no longer hug them.

I loved seeing all of the pictures. Takes me right back to our visits during Christmas break. Loved seeing Granny and Pa Pa, Aunt Audean and Uncle Rudy, and my Daddy. Uncle Jr. looked like he kept very busy in retirement! Aunt Betty, Cedar, and Pam, wish I could be there in person to give you all a hug. Thoughts and prayers coming your way from California.... Love Jayme and Chick

Daddy Hooker will be missed by me and my Mother( Eunice Thomas). I will miss the times we spent looking at the many fruits and vegetables he planted. Also, just listening to his wonderful words of wisdom. Our prayers go out to Momma Hooker and the family.

Betty, Cecilia and Pam. I am so sorry for your loss. I have a lot of memories of him when I played with Cecilia on Sunday afternoons. The tribute y'all have given him and his life are fantastic. So much to remember, so many good memories. Cecilia, you were his "Ceedy Cat". Memories of loved ones help carry us through the days of sorrow.

Love to you all,

BR was a great man, husband, father, grandfather and friend. I have lots of good memories of him and your mom at the Spring house over the years. I know their will be a void in your heart but as we know, those we cherish will always live on in memory. I am proud to have known such a great American.
Love to all.
