Please Pray For Dean Hopper

The following is from the Hoppers FaceBook Page:

DEAN HOPPER HEALTH UPDATE:

Many may know that Dean suffered two strokes back in December due to a physical abnormality. Where there should be two vertebral veins carrying blood into the brain, Dean only has one, and it is 80-90% blocked due to its shape. This, unfortunately, caused three more strokes in the last week.. Testing has determined that he is an excellent candidate for a stent to be placed in the narrow vertebral vein, and with this surgery, his continued heart healthy diet and medications, doctors hope this will keep him out of the woods. This is scheduled for Monday morning and, while we are thrilled with this “answer”, we still covet your prayers for Dean and the family at this time. In the impending weeks, he will be at home resting and recouping from surgery.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
