  1. We were so very sorry to hear about Hank. We will miss his fantastic spirit. We have never seen Hank in a grumpy mood. His lovely words and sweet smile will be missed every single day. We didn’t drive or walk by their home even once without scanning for Hank as he liked to tinker around. We visited often and those visits will be missed greatly. We always asked if we could do anything or help and he always said, “Oh no, this is good for me.” He was a kind and humble soul. I don’t think I will ever make my cinnamon rolls again without thinking about Hank as he did enjoy them. Again, we are very sorry for your loss. ~The Craker Family

  2. Claudine and family: I am so sorry to read of Hank’s passing. You (Hank and Claudine) have been heavy on my mind….you were fine neighbors to me on Pamela Place. May the peace and presence of our Eternal God be with you to comfort you at this time of loss.
