Shorty Short Man Hawkins was my good friend for many years. I purchased the house on Center Street it without any experience in construction broke out a wall in the back of it to put a sliding glass door with no idea what I was doing he came to my rescue. We kept in touch over the years and it was sad to find that he has passed. have been leaving messages on his cell phone all week is cheerful voice greeting me continuously. Only after I left the last message come on shorty call me back I'm getting worried about you I looked at the obituary to find that he had passed. My name is Fred Zeigler I want the family to know I am thinking about you all. God bless.
