ADD A MEMORY
Charles "Larry" Hopper

April 13, 2019

To Ralph and all the Dove family,
It is with deep sorrow that I learned of Ms. Dove's passing. She gave me my first summer job at the big laundry in Jackson where she worked. She helped me get my second job when she worked at the Holiday Inn in Jackson. That job turned into a very successful career in the hotel industry. I am eternally grateful and privileged to have had her in my life. I will love and miss her.
My prayers are with you and all your family.
Larry Hopper
