Pat, Randy and I have been gone from Utah for 14 years. I have many wonderful memories of you, Hoppy and the Lamplite. I will always cherish our friendship, working for you and playing pool together on the Lamplite woman's league. Happy time in my life. I have thought of you many times through the years and used to go by the bar when I was in Ogden visiting family. I was sorry to see it gone. I just happened to be looking online at the obits and read about Hoppy and couldn't pass up the opportunity to let you know I was thinking about you. Love, Suzy
