  1. We want all of you to know that we are still thinking of you in the loss of Hank. He was a special man and we are impressed and proud of all the work he continued to do with the church. Hank will always be remembered and loved by the kids also for the wonderful stories he would take time to tell them. Our love, Dallas and Rose

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. My life would not have been the same had I never had the joy of knowing your family. You were all so wonderful to us when we lost our mom, and for that I will be eternally grateful. May you all find comfort in knowing that your dad is in a far better place, and that he is finally with your mom again, and that they are with their Saviour.

    I am saving a copy of the Lamar Daily News with your dad’s obituary, and if you will e-mail me with an address, I will send it to you. Take care, all, & please let us know if we can help out in any way.
    Love,
    Lisa, Mike, Zach, Daniel & Taylor

  3. Stacye, My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I was so sorry to hear the news. You know how much I care for you and respect you. If there’s anything I can do to help, please don’t hesitate to let me know. Just knowing you and the kind of person you are speaks volumes about your father. Focus on the wonderful memories as they come to you. Love and warm thoughts to you and your family. Faye

  4. We want to express our sincere sympathy in the loss of your dear father, grandfather, brother, and friend. We were grieved to hear of Hank’s departure, but we can know that he is in a much better place. May God give you peace at this time.
