My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Hawk. He was a man who worked hard and tried to
be of assistance to many people during a time of a need of help. Just found out today at the sheriff's office while picking up fingerprint cards. Hope the family will be comforted with peace and assurance from the Lord. Take care.
