I´m so very sorry Charlotte for your loss. I dearly loved Hank. He was such a nice man. We could not make it to the services because we were traveling back from NC. Our prayers are with you always.

Oh Charlotte, I am so sorry to hear this news. I loved learning recently that we were all in Argentia so many years ago. Hank was the very reason that Todd went to the Citadel, so he has always held a special place in our hearts. Sending you, your children, and grandchildren my heartfelt sympathy.
