Sorry to hear about the passing of Brother Patrick Hancock. Bother Hancock was my (Rick's) Sunday School teacher years ago in Hot Springs. I was a very active young boy and he was a young Sunday School teacher and (sorry to say) I gave him fits. In later years he blamed me for his hair loss. He may have been correct about that. He and his family have always been very special to us and we are sorry for his passing, but rejoice in his moving to his Heavenly home. Our love, thoughts, and prayers are with Sister Ruby and Sister Angie and the entire family.
