I was so sad today to hear that my special friend had passed. Hank always had a smile and a hug for me whenever he'd come to the shop to see us. He will be truly missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family. May he rest in peace and forever be in our hearts.
Billie, I am so sorry to find out we lost Hank. I finally got in touch with Claudette. It hurt me deeply that I didn't find out in time to attend the funeral. Hank was special to me as he was to so many. A truly wonderful man, my words seem so shallow to express my feelings. I can say it was a honor for him to call me his friend. Tonia and I will pray for God to hold you and your family close and give you peace that passes all understanding.
Dear Billie and family,
I was so distressed to read about Hank. I didn't realize he was sick. About 2 or so months ago, Hank called me for Mike Carter's phone number. He was going fishing and was going to be near where Mike lives. He sounded wonderful. I am sure you have heard all the accolades, but he was very special. My love and prayers go out to you and the girls and their families during this time of great loss.
Blessed and honored to call Hank our friend.
Mr. and Mrs. Bill Shirkey
Rip uncle Hank U will be missed!!!!
