    RealTree Hunt Club says:
    We are all saddened by the loss of one of our members, Edward Hope. Real Tree Hunt Club offered us the opportunity to know Ed, the man. Ed was a very fair and kind man as well as a mentor to many. He was a man of virtue, setting the bar high for those he would call " friend ". To walk in his shadow was a true honor.
    His boots will always remain at our door. The first deer of the season will always be his. Happy hunting Ed, and may you rest in peace.

    Eddie & Wanda Hope says:
    Our Dad was a person
    who was loving and kind,
    And often he knew
    what we had on your mind.

    He was someone who listens,
    suggests, and defends
    Our dad could be one
    of our very best friends!

    He was proud of our triumphs
    but when things went wrong
    Our dad could be patient
    and helpful and strong.

    In all that we do,
    our dad's love played a part
    There was always a place for him
    deep in our heart.

    And each year that passed
    we were even more glad,
    More grateful and proud
    just to call him our dad!

    Thank you, Dad .
    for listening and caring
    for giving and sharing
    but, especially, for just being you!

    We love you and miss you dearly dad! May God comfort our mom and the rest of our family until we are all together again.

    Larry & Debi Hope says:
    Our Father, taken too soon. He was a strong, loving, caring man. A shining example of what a father should be. A true man among men. Dad touched many a life, all of whom are richer for having known him. Though he will be missed greatly here, we take comfort in knowing that we will all be together again soon in Heaven.
    We love you Dad.
