Not sure what to say?

Hank and I were friends when we were children. When we were in 5th grade he was instrumental in planting a tree at the cemetery in memory of my father. He was always upbeat and encouraging. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Sally and I were saddened to hear of Hank's passing. He was a great neighbor, friend, and past client. He would always stop and chat, either from his car window or walking his dog. We would always laugh and exchange wits with each other. His happy, jovial mood was always refreshing. He will be sorely missed. God rest his soul!

Very sorry to learn of Henry's passing. We frequently communicated on Twitter. I learned a lot from him, as did others.

Sometime -- maybe 12-13 years ago, I discovered Hank's writings on public policy or he discovered mine. I don't recall who found whom. I was in Washington, trying to navigate the raging debate over health insurance. I understood things from an inside-the-beltway, 40,000-foot view. Hank (and his InsureBlog colleagues) patiently walked me through the ground-level perspective of how the laws and regulations really worked in practice. He was a kind, patient, hysterically funny teacher. And I had...

We met on an online blog some years ago, though I am saddened that we'll never be able to meet in person. We supported each other's blogs and he even guest posted on mine. He will be missed.

Dear Gail, I was so surprised to hear about the passing of Hank. Just shocked and wish I lived closer to you. Thank goodness for your girls to help carry you along. Still remembering your mom and all the fun vacations we spent together. And Grandma Roman, who I loved dearly & I know loved you. Praying for peace and acceptance for you. Love, Vicky Leavitt

Hank was a man with a heart of gold and I enjoyed working with him the four years I was at Centerville Insurance Agency. His smile, laugh and bear hugs are unforgettable and I will miss him greatly!!

Gail, I just heard about Hank's passing. I'm at a loss. He has been a part of my Cornerstone life for 20 years. I always enjoyed Hank on a business and personal level. We shared stories and tragedies together. I will miss his laugh and his conversation. My prayers are always with you and the girls.

I was in town with my family checking on my mother after the loss of my father. Words can not express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. I have not thought specifically about Mr. Stern for a number of years although I do remember the life lessons that he taught at Temple Beth OR. I can't do anything to ease the family's pain but can say that Hank made an impact in this young man's life. Hank had a quirkiness about him that allowed him to connect with the children. I now use one of Mr....
