Missing you!

“I practically knew Oscar Sanders and Doris Sanders all my life through my dad, Kenneth Hopes and Chris Hopes. Oscar and Kenneth came down to Houston, Texas back in the 70s find work and a new life. Their friendship was inseparable and was always there for each other. We were with him and his family during the difficult time and will continue to pray for them. May God continue to keep his hands around the family at this time. We love you, The Wilson Family ”
