Thank You to everyone for your kind words and shared memories of my father. I knew my Daddy touched many people throughout his life and hearing from others, like yourselves, helps my mother, myself and Kirra grieve his absence from our physical life. I know he will always be with us in our hearts and live thru the memories we share about and with him. There will never be another man like Elvin Hooper and I’m so proud of this man, who was or “is” my daddy. I love and miss him more than words can describe….he was my everything. Thank you all AGAIN for the love and support as we move forward. -Kristina Ann Hooper
