You are the

Peanut to my butter

Water to my ocean

Glaze on my donut

Spring in my step

Twinkle in my eye

Blue in my sky

Cherry to my sundae

Sweet in my dreams

Flip to my flop

Beat of my heart

Cheese to my macaroni

Best to my friend

Love of my life

Mike,

I know we’ve had our ups and downs but everything we’ve been through has made us stronger and I want you to know that you complete me. I love you!

Love, your wife, Belinda

ED & JANICE HOPKINS

 

Ed and Janice Hopkins were married on February 20, 1965 at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Wyoming, Michigan. The late Rev. Fr. Felix La Pres, officiated the ceremony. Their journey together began four months earlier when two of their friends thought that they should meet on a blind date. They were right! They raised seven children in the Sand Lake area, living there for thirty-one years after moving from Grand Rapids. Their children are Jeff (Alene) Hopkins (Spencer, Jasen, Maddie and Abbey) of Cedar Springs, Melody (T.J.) Long (Jordan, Elaina, Tom and Anthony) of Wyoming, Michigan, Matt (Holly) Hopkins (Shelby, Chase, Heidi, and Ryan) of Cedar Springs, Rebecca (Jack) McHugh (Joshua and Logan) of Walker, Barry Hopkins of Grand Rapids and Mary Beth Hopkins, of Kentwood. Ed and Janice also have two great-grandchildren, Brayden and Ella. Their youngest daughter, Tammy passed away in the Fall of 1998. In 2002, the couple moved to Cedar Springs, while continuing to spend six months each year in Florida working for Walt Disney World. After leaving Florida and WDW, Ed began working at Spartan Distributing in Sparta, where he still works today. Janice is retired and has dinner ready and trips planned when he comes home. A two week Caribbean cruise was recently enjoyed to celebrate their 50th.

The secret to our success is to be willing to step outside of our comfort zones from time to time to find adventures together. But most of all, always being there for each other, not only as spouses, but as each other’s soft place to fall…..and laughing a lot and finding the silly in things, no matter how old we get….trying always to embrace that inner child.
