Memories Timeline


  1. Mr Hoffpauir was a great guy.
    I knew him for nearly sixty years and will never forget the fun times we had. Rest easy old buddy.

  2. PawPaw Louis was always so kind to me. He treated me just like a granddaughter when I married his grandson. I loved his stories and his vivid descriptions of life growing up. I’m so honored to have been a part of his family.
