  I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Hawkins. I grew up on the corner of Lynnhaven and Concord and Mr. Hawkins always waved at us when we was growing up. He will be sadly missed. Now he is an angel watching over his family and he will protect you. If there is anything we can help with please feel free to call us. Mr. Hawkins was a great man and he will be sadly missed. R.I.P.

Freddie assisted me many times in my sign work. He was a fine man and I enjoyed my acquaintance with him. I hope good memories of him will help get you through these difficult times.
