Hank will be greatly missed! She was like a second grandma to me and I remember all the times walking to her house and eating all the delicious food she would make and she always made it fun, be it the picnics we had in many locations around the farm, including the ones in the camper. Those were the best days. And how she credited me for having a mole removed from her chin because while washing dishes with her one day, I asked her about that big pimple. She would always tell me that story, even the lasts time I saw her.

You are all in my prayers!
