Hank was a very good friend since we were teenagers.Spent many days roofing, fishing, shrimping and crawfishing with Hank. At my wedding he was my best man. He was a dear dear friend and there will be an empty spot in my heart until we meet again.

MIllicent, Melanie and Kristen,

I am very sorry for the loss of your father and loved one. Hank knew the Lord from years ago. He was a good hearted person and loved you very much. He is now rejoicing in Heaven and all of his pain has been released. I love your family and as you know, I have been friends with your mother since we were children. She is one of my very best friends for life.
