We will miss Donnie so much. He was a friend to all who would let him. He helped so many people in this lifetime. He showed his love by actions, not just words.

Some of our earliest memories in our congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses involve Donnie and Margie. They only had the three boys at that time. Later, when Rachel came along, the Hopkins family included our daughter Elizabeth in some of ther adventures. Decades of serving Jehovah and trying to help others come to know Him and His Son, Jesus, and the wonderful promise of His righteous kingdom will not be forgotten. Loving and faithful to the end, may they rest in Jehovah’s memory, awaiting His call to stand up again to receive their reward. They were encouraging, fun-loving, generous, and hard-working, despite serious health problems. Individuals, most definitely. See you soon in a better world.

Sending our love to your family. We appreciate Donnie serving Jehovah faithfully along with his faithful wife which was very encouraging to us all along with their faithful service in the RBC up until they could do no more but it will be Just Around the Corner and we can work hard again!
