Another of the lives that Hank touched checking in to say goodbye. To Hanks family and friends, I know that there are no words that I can offer that will ease your pain, so please accept my deepest condolences on this huge loss to your family and community. Those of that only knew Hank from his posts in the online biking community knew him as Cheese or Airwick and he will be missed for his kindness, compassion and humor. Godspeed dear friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Lord, what peace we have that Hank was fully known in you. Thank you for mercy each day of our sadness. For joyful discussions, grape pie, conservative skirts and modest blouses, well-tuned drivetrains, and lunch with mom. Hear our prayers for love enough to meet grief, to conquer fear, to compel hope. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, let your light guide us.

My sincerest and most heartfelt condolences go to Hank's family and his many friends. Hank was a great friend to me over the past several years. He was always such a joy to talk to and play around with on the forum, but it was his genuine concern and care for others that drew people to him and made him so unique. He had a very big heart. It is a huge understatement to say that I will miss him greatly. He was one of kind and in our small part of the internet world, he will be forever remembered and loved. I feel extremely lucky to have known him and to be able to say that he was my friend.

Terri and family, Our deepest condolences to all who loved Hank. He and I shared a great love of the terrier dogs and spent much time debating what to feed them, how to train them, and how they really run our lives.
