Rev.& Mrs Travis Hariston.

To the family of Mrs. Hopkins so sorry to here of your loss. Mrs. Hopkins was a very special kind lady a dedicated Deaconess at High Street Baptist Church. Praying that your precious memories and the Good Lord get you through the days ahead. I will always remember her kind words and beautiful smile.

So many memories with this wonderful lady. You were my first piano teacher. Our journey began almost 30 years ago. When you moved to Florida, I was honored that you thought enough of me to bless me with the piano I took my first lessons on. I will miss those 8am Saturday morning lessons, the cookouts and Mr. Hopkins teaching me to play croquet, and the day you sent me back when I ran away from home and only made it a block to your house on Syracuse with a box of Crunch-n-Munch. Thank you...

Each student was special. She saw no backgrounds, no differences. She treated us all with respect and made us each feel special. She was my role model when I became a teacher.
A simple...

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

To The Alexander Family,
My deepest sympathy and may God bless you during this time of need.
