  4. Dear Hankins family,
    I’m truely sorry for the loss of Joedale. I regret that Joe and I over the past 12 years have lost tough with one another. I want to believe that some day that we may have been able to rekindle our friendship. Unfortunately, and regretably that won’t happen.

  5. Dear Dale and Joe,

    Joedale was a very loving person and I will always remember him.
    My condolences and prayer are with the entire family.

  6. Our sincerest sympathies … we enjoyed knowing Joedale and met him through our son Albert. For several years they were very close and then as sometimes happens due to life they drew apart and we had not seen too much of him recently. We always knew he was there and felt we could see him and talk to him at any time and that he would be around a long time simply because he was so young. Now that he is gone so unexpectly we, like I’m sure a lot of people, will miss him.
