    Mr. Hank you were more than just our neighbor for the last 17 years, you were family. Always ready to lend a hand or just sit around and swap stories. You even spoiled my kids with popsicles lol. It's not gonna be the same not seeing you riding around on that tractor or outside working on something, but I'll always think about you when I look over that way. So many good memories from our home include you. I pray for peace for your family and well deserved rest for you. You were one of the finest men I've ever had the good fortune to know and we will greatly miss you.
