Thanks Ben and Frances Hooks for the many doors and eyes you opened. Thank you for your dignity and endless faith in the One God and our people, especially young people.
Mrs. Hooks was employed at
Carver HS in south Memphis when I was in school. I would become a lawyer, and have always been grateful to the Hooks, Ben and Frances.

We Walk This Way But Once
We walk this way but once and we must make it count. It is no mystery to us that Benjamin Hooks made his presence here on earth count. It was a privilege to get to know Benjamin Hooks when I was child. As a member of the youth department of the NAACP we sat in AWE of the courageous men and women that were our fearless leaders.
To the family of Dr. Hooks we offer our sincere gratitude to you for allowing us to share your loved one over the years. Dr. Benjamin Hooks will forever reign as a true American Hero to us all. He is now reunited with his loved ones and with those other warriors that have gone on before. I am so grateful that Dr. Hooks lived a long life and was able to enjoy some of the fruits of his labor as well as the fruits of the labor of his renowned predecessors.
We thank God for Dr. Hooks and in his honor we will march on keeping the dream alive until we are all reunited in that, “Sweet Bye and Bye”; where everyday will be Sunday and Sabbath will have no end. We will meet him again somewhere up there in the air, but we know not when for we have miles yet to travel before we sleep and until then we will make our life here on earth count knowing that we to only walk this way once.

Frances: Dee and I wish to express our sincere sympathy to you, and your family. America and Black American have lost yet another Icon. However, I have lost a very, very, dear friend.
I find myself today thinking about the three of us growing up in Memphis and all the fun we had together. I will check on you often love, and may God continue to Bless You and Keep You in his unchanging hands.

God Bless you and your family,
Larry E. Brown Jr & Delores Brown
