Why is in the passing of someone close and meaningful during a part of our lives we find just the right words to pay them homage. My relationship with Hank was at all times respectful and friendly even though at times we were politically at odds. The best compliment that I paid to Hank was to tell him I honored him for his military service and thanked him for his support as a dedicated member of the FOP. How I wish Hank could have read all the attached sentiments at a more celebratory moment in his distinguished career. Rest in peace Hank you leave a seat at the FOP table that cannot be filled.
