    Our Sincere Sympathy to the Hopson family.

    Steve Swanton on Jun 22, 2018

    Aunt Lynne, Greg, Jon, and Rich,
    Heidi and I want to express our deepest sympathy to you and your families. I'm one of a short list of folks that had the honor of having your Husband/Dad as my Uncle Dwight. My greatest memory of Uncle Dwight as a youngster was his willingness, after a long day of work, to take the time to saddle the horses up and take a certain horse-crazed nephew on a ride through the pasture. I will truly miss his sense of humor and quick witted conversations. God Bless all your families during this rough time. God Bless Uncle Dwight.

    Dick and Bonnie Lien on Jun 21, 2018

    CandleThinking of you, Lynne and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time. I love seeing the Winter Haven name badge in his picture. Dwight was always so upbeat with a smile and a twinkle in his eyes. God's blessings on you all.

    To the Hopson family , my sympathies.

    Sharon on Jun 21, 2018

    You and your family have my sincere condolences and sympathy. Your Dad and I have two favorite things in common, farming and dancing. I know now where your "happy feet" come from.
    Know that you and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers throughout this time of grief. May he rest in peace. Take care and safe travels, Sharon

    When we lived near Emeline; Dwight & Lenny, Alden & Donna Browne, Jim Ihrig's, and
    Lovell & I had a lot of fun together and have all stayed friends.
    When I remember Dwight; I think of his positive attitude, that twinkle in his eye, dances,
    cowboy hats, and that scarecrow that traveled. Dale and Lovell Caraway
