Judi and Family,
We are so sorry to hear that Hank has passed. We pray that ALL the wonderful memories fill the void Hank has left. We will always appreciate his helpfulness as a neighbor, his awesomeness as a fabulous friend, and the memorable laugh and the life of our sorority parties. We THANK God for our treasured memories. Hank was the best example of how to love life! Always caring, giving, and loving - a true statue of a Man.
Our prayers that we ALL find comfort in his memorable moments in life.
Farewell dear Hank...until we meet again.
With LOVE,
The Pulver's
David, Carol, & Family
