I am sad to hear about Mr. Hoover’s passing. I have lots of fun memories playing with Stefanie from one end of the bottom to the other end. Things just got a whole lot more exciting up above and now my sweet daddy has his buddy Chet by his side and no telling what kind of trouble they are planning . The whole Junkin Crew will be thinking of y’all! Stephanie Junkin Allen
