Our deepest sympathy goes to the Stokes family. We’ve had the great pleasure of meeting and spending a little time with Wright and Eloise in years past at our home here in GA and on the Destin FL beach where the family spent a vacation. We are so thankful for Becky,who is a wonderful daughter in law and very dear to our hearts. Although saddened that we cannot visit with Wright we rejoyce in the belief that we will reunite some day. God bless you all. Our love, Charlotte and John Hendershot
