    Our father (George Hopp) sparkled about sharing time/room together. We will always treasure the short but special time together last week. He is your healthy guardian angel now and our family is passionate about a cure for Demon Diabetes. Does it help that he beamed while telling us about his family? He knew he was loved and also said that Homewood was great caring place. Our hearts hurt with you. Big hug and appreciation for your friendship to our family over the years.

    I am so sorry to hear about Great Uncle Raymond’s passing. I loved him. I am reminded of him coming out to my high school graduation. I had hoped to ask Uncle Raymond to stand in for Grandpa (Keith Carney) at my upcoming wedding. He is in a better place now. I am so sorry for your loss.
