Thanks to everyone for your heartfelt thoughts. My sister, Cathy, and I as well as our Uncle Rondell are comforted by all of the people that attended Dad's funeral or who have written notes. The Woodlawn staff was superb. Dick Brackett and Wavell Stewart did a remarkable job of officiating. Lastly, we were honored to have our ol' scout buddy, Bart Sharpe, play taps. Dad had wonderful friends. Thank you all.

Dennis and I extend our sympathy to your family. We just heard about his passing and want you to know that he was a great man with a big heart. We knew him through Boy Scouts and Crieve Hall church.

Hank was a prince of man. In my later years of Scouting, he was Scoutmaster, and friend. In the years since we have always enjoyed seeing each other. When we moved my Dad to Elmcroft, Hank was there welcoming him. I remember his love and care for the Lord's church. From preachers, to Senior Saints, to kids in Scouting Hank Loggins was there, serving, encouraging, and molding into men. What a fantastic servant he was. His life is testament to his faith in our Lord. The last time I talked him, he was tired, and weak, but he spoke well of my Dad and asked specifically about my family and grandkids. Only heaven knows the number of people Hank has encouraged and served in this life. I am one of them and for Hank's life I give God thanks and glory. To Brian and Cathy I say simply this. Your dad was one of the great ones and will be highly missed one of his former Scouts, Jeff Smith.

Hank was one of those rare individuals that we are privileged to know in this life. His leadership in Scouts impacted so many young men. Our loss is certainly Heaven's gain. He will be missed.

Love ya,

I recently spoke with Mr. Loggins as he resided in the same facility as my father. The two of them spent much time with Troop 227 at Crieve Hall. My thanks to his family for sharing him with the Scouts. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
