I WAS SO SAD TO HEAR OF HANSFORD'S ACCIDENT AND DEATH. HE WAS A JOY TO BE WITH BECAUSE OF HIS WONDERFUL PERSONALITY, AND WHEN HE SANG HE ALWAYS MADE ME SMILE SUNBEAMS.

My son and I watched you in "V" over Labor Day weekend. Had no idea you'd passed away that following Tuesday. You were great as Arthur DuPre.
