Condolence: Cindy, Amber, Jonny, and Kyli -

There isn't enough room to write all the heartfelt friendship, love and laughter Hoopie brought into my life over the years. Not only that, but he saved my life once (ocean current and jellyfish) and just another story I have about him. Ha! He was another brother to me and a best friend for life. I will never forget his easy laughter that filled the room! I will miss this good man until I get to see him again and tell big stories and hear his laughter. Love always!
