I have to say I will miss my email buddy and family friend. I looked forward to our e-chats and holiday visits when the boys would get together. He and Jake had a routine of getting together then and playing a round of golf or just "hangin". Hanks sense of humor still makes me smile. We were all blessed in having him touch our lives. We truly will always have him close to our hearts. Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization. Charles Lindbergh US aviator (1902 - 1974) Hank you went for the gusto in life. I hope we all achieve that same freedom. At least one time in our life. Go in peace Tecchie and many thanks for being a part of our lives.
