Dear Hank,
We were so sorry to learn of Barbara's passing. I have wonderful high school memories of her and of you both when you came into her life. We had lots of fun together. The good ones always seem to leave us way too soon. Our deepest sympathies, Pat and Herb

Dear Hank, I am so sorry for your loss. Barbara was a happy, wonderful, caring person. I enjoyed so much the time I spent bowliing with you and Barbara. I know you have had so much on your plate these last months and I wish there was something I could do or say to make your pain a little easier. I do understand just having lost Richard in December after a long illness. I am praying for you and your family. Just know that we all care!

My condolences to the Bishop family. Barbara was a wonderful friend, as was Hank, to my parents Joe and Marie Graham. I would quite often hear stories of the fun they had camping or just visiting. I'm sure my parents are welcoming their friend into heaven with a camp fire and a glass of wine. My thoughts are with 'Hank the Crank' and all the kids during this difficult time.

Dear Hank and Family -

Mary and I were so sorry to hear about Barbara's passing. She was a fun loving person and we had such good times with you guys when you visited Hull. We still have your book of travels when you had the motor home and visited all those states (including Alaska).

Our deepest condolences and she will be in our prayers. Our best to you and your family.

Fondly,
Bob & Mary Johnson

Our love and prayers are with you all at this time. She has been such a brick through all of this. I can still remember the first time I met her at the Glass House some 40 years ago. We sure have enjoyed all the good times we had together. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. She is at peace now. Just bought her b card Sunday.

Hank and family,
We have lived next door to Hank and Barbara for about 6 years now and we feel blessed to have been a part of their lives. Barbara has fought such a courageous battle against ALS and we admire her for how hard she fought. We hope you can take comfort in knowing that she is no longer fighting and can finally sleep peacefully. We are grateful to all of you for allowing us to spend some time with Barbara these past few days. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We are here for whatever you need.
Much love,
Mike and Patty Wallen

Many years ago, I heard my best friend Henry Bishop say to me," Dick, I am in Love", after his first dance with Barbara Snow, at a dance in Quincy,MA. We were always good friends, and I was honored to be in their wedding party when she married Hank, over 50 years ago. My wife and I have always loved them, and will miss Barbara very much.
She was a trooper fighting ALS, and very Brave. God will welcome her into his Kingdom in Heaven.
