Bio and Links
I am a single (divorced) mother of five sons, Tone 21, Kevin 19, Hale' 17, Mikey 16 and my sweet BJ 14, and a grandmother to a baby boy named TJ. God blessed me with sons, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I was introduced to FAG by Nique (Shannique Solaita) who sponsors my son BJ Ala'ilima. BJ is short for Bill-Junior, named after my two brothers Bill and Junior Hopkinson. BJ is the youngest of my sons.

I would like to thank everyone for visiting with BJ. He is well loved and missed by many. This boy made such a difference in so many people's lives. He had a smile that was contagious, and a heart that was bigger than he was. BJ stood 6'2" BJ was the gentle giant. He respected everyone. The age group of his friends ranged from little kids, to grown adults. What a blessing he has been in my life. I miss my son so much. BJ loved music, but most of all football. His passion was football, there was no doubt in my mind that BJ would have made it to college playing ball. His ultimate dream was to play pro. His favorite NFL team is the Raiders.

God bless you all for your kind words and taking the time to visit with my son, especially to Nique for starting it all.

Please visit my father Niula'ititi Harry "Hale" Hopkinson who passed away from cancer three months after my son. My father could not travel to attend my son's funeral, but was here with me and my sons in spirit. They are now together in Heaven watching over us, until we are all together again.

~Happy Mother's Day~

How God created mother

God took the fragrance of a flower,
The majesty of a tree,
The gentleness of morning dew,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The beauty of a twilight hour,
The soul of a starry night
The laughter of the rippling brook,
The grace of a bird in flight,
Then God fashioned from these things
A creation like no other,
And when His masterpiece was through,
He called it simply...MOTHER.
