Pat and I are so sorry to hear about Mr. Hoskins' passing. He was such a nice man. He refinished this round coffee table of ours, which belonged to Pat's Dad, so it was very special to her. He refinished it with the absolute greatest love and care. We still have it and will treasure it for the remainder of our lives. We sure will be praying for all of you during the weeks and months ahead. God bless you all with His best.

The Hoskins' family has been a part of my life for longer than I can remember. Our families & the Sanders' family became friends many decades ago. Eddie was the last of the 6, so they're all together now in heaven. He was usually pretty quiet when I was around him, but with those wives, who could get a word in. He'll be missed, for sure. Allow yourselves to grieve your loss, remember the good times. And, crying is okay, even if it is a few months from now. Unfortunately, I won't be able to be with you, I recently had surgery and a lengthy hospital stay. I'm better now, but still healing. But I'll be there in spirit, and sending hugs to you. I'll also be praying for all of you.
