Dear Kathy, Beth, Mike and Sue,

Words cannot express my sincere sympathy. Sorry I cannot be at your side in your time of sorrow, but be assured I will be thinking of you all. Treasure your many beautiful memories, which I am certain that is what your husband/dad would have wanted you to do. My love, Alverta

Carolyn and I send our condolences to Kathy and the rest of the family. Hank and Kathy have been inspirations to all of us who have known them. Hank has been a good friend and a wise, caring, and passionate advisor and servant. His family and faith were very important to him, and all who knew him enjoyed his company. Those of us at Seton and in the Serra organization will deeply miss his presence and his support. Well done, good and faithful servant.

My condolences Kathy. Hank was one of the finest persons I have ever had the opportunity to work for in my career. I learned a lot from him in patience and quiet resolve. He was always so kind, and you wanted to be on his team as Hank was always about success and accomplishment. My prayers to y ou and your family in this time of your loss. Our Great God will see you through in faith during this time and know that the Campbell Taggart family loved and respected Hank in all that we did. I am very proud to say I worked for Hank and he was a fine man. We enjoyed bowling many nights together while I was in college. May God Bless you!


Hank with his Dad, Casper and Mom, Iola
