Dear Grandma Hannah. It's difficult to find the words to say how much that I will miss you. I was fortunate enough to spend time with you last summer. You got to meat my 4 year old son Toby, and just like me loved you from the moment that you two met. Thank you for your time. I will miss our conversations most of all and especially hearing your laugh. You will always be missed.

Miss Hannah Number1!!!!! Where do I begin?
Fred named you number 1 and he and I loved you dearly💕. He was 1.5 and the loving competition went on for years.
I learned a lot from you, thinking of u always makes me smile. I’m sure you and Freddy are having a wonderful time in heaven!!
Remember the time we spent together during the hurricane. Marie and I could listen to your stories all day. Special time for all of us!
I admire you and am truly grateful I could call you my friend ❤️

Hannah Dove was the best Mother-in-Law anyone could ask for, and I was blessed to have her live with us a couple of times. In those 30+ years she was always loving, kind, sweet and a wonderful Southern Belle. Many years ago she & I talked and she liked the idea of me calling her "Mama" which I did. This made for some interesting times when people heard me call her mama, then found out I was married to her daughter!
Mary Ann & I took Hannah to England a couple times and she never complained when we got her a wheelchair at the airport - and she would put 7-8 carry-on bags on her lap as we went thru the airport, even though she could hardly see over them. She did have one question we heard often "how much is this in American?", we would tell her and she would buy whatever it was. She won over the hearts of our English friends and everyone she met there.
There are so many things I will miss, our morning coffees, fixing her TV, and the downstairs meals. Every time I would leave downstairs we would have a conversation like this - "I love you mama", she would say "I love you more", I would say "I love you the most" and she would say "I love you the mostest".
Mama, I'm glad you are with Michael and Cosset, thank you for all the love you gave me, and I will miss you forever. Gunner

Hannah was my dear lovely friend. I’m so grateful for having spent time with her last May during my visit to Myrtle Beach. You were guaranteed fun and laughter anytime Hannah was near. Her zest for life was a joy to witness. Rest In Peace, dear Hannah.

Unlike most of the people here I didn't get to Meet Hannah until around 6 or so years ago. She was always very sweet and genuinely thoughtful. She optimized the phrase Southern-Hospitality as she had a way of making you feel welcome even at your own house. She came out to California to visit me and my wife along with Gunner and Mary Ann, and then we visited them in Myrtle Beach. Hannah had a way of adding a light-hearted spin on whatever was being discussed. My fondest moments with here were the discussions that we had about her life experiences. Two put it into perspective She remembered what FDR was like as President, She remembered what it was like to live through the Cuban Missile crisis the Vietnam war, etc. It was always interesting hearing hearing her insights on how she dealt with life in general.
During this current crisis the things that matter most are becoming more obvious. When I had those discussions with Hanna about her experiences during those famous events in history, she told me that whenever times were tough what mattered most were always family and friends. During this current crisis I am beginning to realize just how true those words are. When you boil it all down, family and friends end up being the most important things to get you through the tough times.
Farewell Hanna, my Wife, Son, and I will miss you, and thank you for all of your wonderful insights.

I miss my aunt Hannah so much.
She was a truly wonderful person and was loved by so many. I wanted to see her one last time but the Corona virus made it impossible to do that.
We always had a great time and laughed until our sides hurt.
Aunt Hannah was one of our last true southern Belles.
My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousins. Paul and Mary Ann.

My lovely little southern belle mama. I was lucky to have her with me to the very end. She was the funniest person I ever met. Once we were in Boston for mother's day..at the oldest church in the u.s. ....the preacher was preaching and mama got the giggles......which was very contagious......our entire pew was escorted out of the sanctuary. During the service....but with huge smiles. You never knew when the giggles would hit....but you could be guaranteed , you would laugh until you cried. How fun. And lucky to have her as my mama....even thought she wore my shoes.......I love you, mama

Hannah came to ALL my shows! We were roommates for 6 months 13 years ago when my marriage blew up. Gunner, her son-in-law, hooked us up... When I asked her if I could move my drums into her upstairs bedroom, she didn't hesitate to say yes. She was so witty and loved to laugh. The sweetest lady I ever knew. And when I had to go to Boston for surgery, Hannah and my mother accompanied me. She was 80 years old then and still game to do something like that. I will miss you terribly, Hannah.

Aunt Hannah was such a sweet southern bell. She treated me so kindly and made sure I had my morning coffee and some good southern food. Rest in Peace Aunt Hanna.

Hannah Dove was my sweet, loving, smart, special Aunt Hannah. She was always laughing through her stories good or bad. She had a great smile. She made me feel so special and loved. I am sure she made everyone feel special. Aunt Hannah and my mother were good friends. I am sure they are once again enjoying each other’s company. Heaven is a much better place to have such great ladies together again. I already miss you so much. I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you , I love you always and I win this time. I hope to see you again one day and I will let you win. In the meantime you and Moma can pick up the love you again.
Love to Mary Ann, Paul, Gunner and Andrea

It was such a blessing to me to get to know Hannah over the past few years. We spent many hours talking and laughing on the phone. She told me so much about our family and my own grandfather, her uncle, Perry Carter. From our first conversation, I could feel her extraordinary love for her entire family. She was so sweet snd funny and clever! Alan and I are so glad we were able to visit Hannah in January, and I will long remember the pedicure Hannah and I enjoyed (and giggled through) together. To MaryAnn, Paul, Gunner and Andrea, Alan and I extend our deepest condolences. Hannah is in heaven, but her love remains with all us. May God bless and keep you in the difficult days ahead. Love, Carol and Alan
