So sad and sorry to hear about your loss, dear Pastor Phil and Christa, and all the Hopper extended family! Reading a thumbnail sketch about Van's life shows such steadfastness, faithfulness, and depth of leadership and commitment. We don't have the privilege of seeing these qualities in men as much anymore, but look at the legacy he left and size of your family tree! What an impact he made! Glory to God! I know he will be sorely missed; I am so sorry for your pain and loss! God bless each of you in this beautiful family tree!
