  1. Words cannot express the sadness I feel. I remember the first time I actually visited with Mr. Hopper (more than just a passing hello). Back in 1993, our first cool spell, I walked down to check my mail and Mr. Hopper stopped me, looked down at my feet and said, ”well, you do own a pair of shoes”. From that day on we were friends. I will cherish the memories we shared, if I could have picked a daddy, I would have picked Mr. Hopper.
    Mrs. Hopper and the rest of the family, I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers and my love are with each one of you.

  2. I be alway respected and called him Mr. Hopper (also Mrs. Hopper as well) one day he told me “Heath Call me Lloyd” I never changed my respect for him. So sorry for the loss of such a great man. Praying for his beautiful wife and family.

  4. Happy 1st Birthday in heaven to a great husband, father, friend and papa. Lois may God wrap you and your family in his loving arms and fill your hearts with beautiful memories and peace. Our deepest sympathies. The Garza Family.

  5. I also forgot to tell you, Lloyd, Kirby is waiting on you to get the spray rig ready so you all can go to work

  6. Our deepest sympathy on your loss. I have very fond memories of Mr. Hopper on the farm and as a very loving, supportive dad to his children and the children of Frenship. He let us take over his barn to build a replica of a gin for Junior Historians and never complained about the mess we made. I remember spraying weeds for him (when we used to spray weeds). When I hear the poem “God made a farmer”–I think of Mr. Hopper. God bless you in these days as you celebrate and remember the quality man that he was.

  7. He was a great Uncle and I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with Aunt Lois and her children.
