My thoughts and prayers are with Connie, Brian, Greg, and all of the Hooper family. I first met Carl about 30 years ago when I worked for he and Connie for a bit, afterwards we would see each other occasionally and catch up at the post office, and while serving on the Village board and then as neighbors and friends got to spend more time chatting and aggravating each other and attempting to solve world issues. I will sure miss him.

My condolences to the Hooper family. I had the pleasure of serving on the Village of Forest Hills board with Carl Hooper for many years. I learned he was a good man - one with principles and integrity. He will be missed in our community. Please let us support you in any way we can.
