Bro. Lindley was someone I admired so very much. His music touched my heart and soul. I never saw him without a smile and greeting to all that knew him.
I wish I could be there to celebrate his celebration of life but due to an accident I will not be able to attend.
My prayers are with his dear family. I love you all.

We salute an amazing soldier of the cross who has chosen to go home. Herman was the dearest of friends to the Hopper family. Yes, years distanced us but our hearts were filled with great memories containing so much joy. Men of Herman’s stature and integrity are rare He handled life with class and Christ-like compassion.
Am remembering the times he would join us to help work with the young people during Teen Time. Gene considered him such a vital part of the youth ministry and welcomed his presence. Herman’s musical talents were many however he never forgot that it was God’s guidance which made all the singing so successful. Because of that the anointing was always evident.
As I close must tell how blessed we were to have had him in our lives. He was our friend beyond a friend. He was more like family. We love you Herman and look forward to the day when we will all be together once again.
Love, Karen, Cameron, Kellee & Alisha
