    Hollis was a loving and super brother who I will miss dearly. He would let me hang around with him and his friends, playing basketball at the Carter’s home. I was never afraid of anything or anybody because i was Hollis Little Sister. We enjoyed playing cards, checkers, and dominoes. Our favorite thing to do was dance and enjoy great music. You will be missed Hollis. Please enjoy life with your family and friends.

    Although we lost touch, Hollis remained a friend in my heart. I’d keep in touch with him via Facebook, and there I saw the love that he had for his family! This is not a surprise because I saw the love that he shared for his sister, Shirley, as we all hung out as teens. He was a great friend and will truly be missed!
