I was so sorry to hear of Carl Hoover's death. He was a dear friend of our family. Being from a country community, we all barned tobacco and picked cotton together, attended the same church (Robert's Grove), and just maintained that "good ole' country fellowship." He will be missed. May God's loving, healing arms embrace Doris and Sharon, and their family members during this time.

Dear family,

Just wanted to send my condolences. I remember finding out who Mr. Carl Hoover was when I was very close to Bobby Tew's family during my growing-up years. I know you will miss him very much but are glad all suffering is over for him. Be strengthened & encouraged by God's love & presence in your lives.
