    Fran and family, I was so sad to hear about the passing of Hank today. I first met Hank when my Dad was in the choir with him, but didn’t get to know him well until I was a freshman in high school and interviewed him for a project at school. Hank and I stayed close throughout the years; including a youth group mission trip together. His wisdom and caring for others stood out to me, but what stood out the most was how much he cared for people. I always looked forward to seeing Hank at church because I would get a huge smile from him and a monster hand shake. For that, he will always hold a special place in my heart. He is missed, but most of all; he is loved!
