    To My Best Girlfriend,
    Words can never express how I feel. You, Hank and us have been friends for over 35 years. We were more family than friends. I am so sorry for Hanks passing, but I do know he is healed. He will always be in my heart and be my “Hanky Poo”. He will be missed by many, but the memories we all made through the years will always be with us as he will. Carol, Tanya and Rene stay close to each other and love each other. Always remember love you!!!
    Tanya and Rene,
