God give you peace. I was very young when you served and died but my mom told me about your death and I didn't understand then but now I do. I grew up to know your brothers and I wish I could have known you too. Man may make mistakes but God never does. May He give you peace. Love you "cuz"! We won't forget you! Johnnie Hopkins.
