I was one of those kids that was treated to a trip to Florida @1976. I came from a poor family so this was the best trip of my life. "Hank" to me, was a family friend and a true humanitarian. I know he had to have spent a lot of money one all us kids. We stayed at beachfront hotels, went to amusement parks, movies, ate at nice restaurants, etc. He even bought some bathing suites if they didn't have one. Tampa Florida, Busch Gardens was the greatest. I think he wanted to bring some happiness and good memories to kids that were underprivileged. He had a generous and kind heart. Thank you Hank. RIP

Family friend
