Jozie and her younger sister, Gabby, always brought love, smiles, and laughter with them to our church. Our hearts break with and our prayers go out to her family and friends during this time. Jozie, I miss and love you so much, but I know we will see you again, and Heaven is so much sweeter with you there.
Love Always, Bridgette Hopkins - Pastor's Daughter and Bus Worker

I am so glad that I was able to meet Jozie and her sister Gabby about 7 years ago when they rode the church bus that I worked on. She was always a joy to have on the bus as we shared lots of laughs. I'm thankful for the day that she asked the Lord to save her because I know that one day I'll also be able to see her in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Melissa Crosby, HBC Bus Captain

Terrell Hopkins, Pastor, HBC on Feb 8, 2018

Jozie was a sweet, gentle, young lady. She rode our church bus here at Heritage Baptist Church, in Locust Grove, Georgia. Her laugh and smile was contagious! We are thankful for the time that she and Buffy were able to ride with us, and especially for the day she asked the Lord to be her Saviour. She will always be in our hearts! Our church family sends our prayers to your family.

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer.
