Our prayers are with the family.
Hank was a great guy when we were in high school, and no doubt his "greatness" continued throughout his adult life. His brother, George, was my classmate, but I knew Hank and his wife and was astonished that he had passed.
Andy, Curtis, Dede & children, you have our sincere condolence and prayers. After 12 years of school, lifetime, friendship, church, Hank & Edie loved like family. God's richest blessings for you all is my prayer.
My lifetime friend from Sallis Grade School thru life. Hank, Rest in Peace with Edie.Thomas Aaron Owen CHS Class of 1958
Dear family, I have so many happy memories of all the good times we had at Lamar with Sparky and Lil. It will be all those memories that will help you through the dark days ahead with the death of Hank. It makes me smile when I think of the reunion that Hank is having with Jerry and George and all of the other family members who were waiting in Heaven. I am sending my love and condolences to each of you. Wilma Sparks Harris
