1 thought on “Rex Leon (Sr.) Hawkins”

  1. Dear Hawkins Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss and would like to share a scripture with you. The scripture is found at 1 Corinthians 1:3,4. Here the Bible tells us that when a loved one dies, or we’re facing any other tragedy; we can receive comfort from God himself. And with the comfort we receive from him we can comfort others. Just knowing how much God cares for us is a comfort itself. I hope this message finds you well and gives the family some encouragement during this difficult time.
