Our thoughts and prayers are with the Deutschendorf's. We remember the twins running around while watching their older sister play little league baseball with our son on the Rams.

I met Hank when he first started the West Coast Martial Art with Will, Steve, and Bob. That was 10 years ago. Hank was a gentle and kind young man. As years passed, I noticed changes and his struggle. I will always remember him as a enthusiastic young man eager to learn about everything, his funny laughter and his friendly attitude he has shown me and my children. Thank you Hank.
