Dear brother-in-law how to forget that great unconditional love that you had for my sister Paty that is of great admiration, that union and companionship that you two had, so close and, I know that you will continue loving each other eternally, thank you for all the beautiful moments we all spent together here in Chile as a family, your great heart, joy and sympathy we will always carry in our hearts, you will always be alive in our hearts, my mom, mine, my children and my grandchildren, we will always remember you with a smile and a small guitar in your hands singing your beautiful songs, thank you for all the love you gave my sister in life and I know that you will continue loving and care for her from heaven because you two are the true love of each other and soul mates. We always knew that God sent you to each other’s life to join in a sacred Catholic marriage that would last forever. Our sister Paty told us how especial you are for her and you are always in her heart forever. We love you very much especially for the great love that you two shared. God bless you in heaven my dear brother-in-law Hank.

Patricia - I am so sorry for the loss of your dear husband, Hank. I always enjoyed Hank's company and his fraternity in the Knights. I always enjoyed seeing you both every week at Mass and thought what a wonderful couple you two are. Please accept my deepest sympathies and know that you are in my prayers. May you take comfort in the good memories and find Peace in Our Lord and Savior.

Hank was a good man. I knew him as a Brother Knight at St. Andrew By the Bay. He was always kind to me and I was always appreciative that he took his time to come my installation as Grand Knight. He was always supportive of our church and our council. He will be missed. Vivat Jesus Hank.
