Dear Hank,
We were so sorry to learn of Barbara's passing. I have wonderful high school memories of her and of you both when you came into her life. We had lots of fun together. The good ones always seem to leave us way too soon. Our deepest sympathies, Pat and Herb

Dear Hank, I am so sorry for your loss. Barbara was a happy, wonderful, caring person. I enjoyed so much the time I spent bowliing with you and Barbara. I know you have had so much on your plate these last months and I wish there was something I could do or say to make your pain a little easier. I do understand just having lost Richard in December after a long illness. I am praying for you and your family. Just know that we all care!
