An Everlasting Christmas Present

A loving smile
A tender heart
A lending hand
Everyone’s friend


Mark E. Hopper
December 25, 1960
January 27, 1993

You were our Christmas present from the Lord - and He confirmed it even more with your arrival at 2:38 in the afternoon. You were our Book of Acts baby, proclaiming God's Plan of Salvation in a small 6 lbs. 7 oz. bundle. What a gift from above to brighten our lives for 32 years. We miss you each and every day.
Loving you always, Mom

Sis. Hopper,
I was thinking about Mark last night. I miss my friend! Perfect description: loving smile, tender heart, lending hand, everyone's friend.

Merry Christmas to all the Hoppers. Love you!

May the joy of family and frends recall this great young man.

May the joy of these friends and family overcome!

Marry Christmas to you and your Hubby.

Hi Karen,

This is a nice tribute to your son. Truly, our children are a gift from God, and what a privilige it is that God entrusts them to us. There is hardly a day that goes by that I don't tell my children that I love them, and they tell me the same. It's so important, because not a single one of us is guaranteed the promise of tomorrow. Thank you for sharing your memories here and for this reminder to cherish our loved ones.

May you and your family have a blessed Christmas.
