Debbie, Susie and family, So sorry to hear of Earls passing. What a great man he was to all. Remembering always a smile. He is at rest with Nadine and I’m sure he is filling her in on how everyone is and what’s been going on in the world.
Thinking of you all and sending hugs.

While we didn’t always agree-it’s a Hanson thing, you were the best Father anyone could ask for. Everyone was always first and you put yourself last. I miss you!
Love Always,
