I am so sorry for your grief. I was blest by his smile and kindness. I loved the parties every summer and the great sense of humor. He gave all to all.

To the great Hannon family, What a privilege it has been to know Mr. Hannon as my neighbor and friend. Since moving to Bloomsbury 20 years ago, Mr. Hannon has watched over our entire block with kindness and understanding. It has been a comfort to have him there as he set a fine example for all of us in so many ways. Although I always admired his garden, he seemed to appreciate tomatoes from my own garden. Words cannot express the compassion I have for the family, all of you just as wonderful as he was. May God bless all of you with his wisdom and kind heart. I will be forever grateful for the example that he and his wife have set for our community. There is none better. Terry and Kenny Sann

Patricia, Frankie, Colleen, and Janie:

Mr. Frank will truly be missed and was the best neighbor that anyone could ask for. I can remember when we first moved into our family's house, Mr. Frank was there for us. Over the years, Mr Frank was no stranger to my family but he didn't make acquaintenance with us until we moved in. He came over, immediately introduced himself, and provided me with his words of wisdom. "C.J., your house is like mine...old. When it comes to remodeling, you ain't never gonna get finished. If you ever need a tool, come over and get it". Mr. Frank was the Mayor of the intersection of Bloomingdale and Bloomsbury. I could always count on him to give me the latest scoop on the neighborhood happenings and we had an open invitation to join his family on the mayor's porch to watch the 4th of July parade. God Bless You, Mr. Frank.
