My deepest sympathy to the entire Hopple family as you mourn John’s passing. I remember fondly our Sunday afternoon basketball battles for many years at BC, though not so much those boney elbows of his, which happened to make contact once in awhile! May you take solace in knowing that John is resting comfortably in Our Lord’s arms. I pray that the Lord will bring comfort to your aching hearts and minds. God bless you all.
