Hank fought a tough battle and I am very sorry to see him lose this time. One of Hank's favorite phrases was ”You know I'm not a politician, but if I was I would probably…” Then he would go on to give his advice. The debate is still out on whether or not Hank was a politician, but most would certainly agree that he was a good public servant for many years and those that knew him also were privileged to call him friend.

So Sorry for your loss Jean. Worked with Hank a couple of times and always enjoyed hearing from him. No nonsense and very fair.

Please know you are in our prayers.
