In memory of our friend….

Hank Hebb

You could say that the love that Steve and I share is a fairy tale. When I met steve and was introduced to his family and friends I was apart of the family. I can say that along the way a few of those people became very special to me. We have shared many private jokes, laughs, tears, dances and meals together. I have know these people for more than 20 years, so they are more than family to me in my heart.

One such memory, and private joke comes from the year we did a blood drive at the American Legion Post 7 and one of the first times I had met Hank. In the back giving blood, there were several of us laying on the cots, with tubes of blood filling bags, and a stress balls in our hand squeezing away. In comes Hank… I’m the only female, and Hank looks at me, gets a huge grin on his face, and waggles his eye brows…and busts into laughter. The entire room busts out laughing… Thats the kind of guy that Hank was, he always found a way to make people laugh. All these years later, every time I saw him, he remembered that day, it that became our thing.

Hank Hebb… This is for you! @>–%—

On January 24, one person who I have held near and dear to my heart for over 20 years was called home. Hank, was always good for a joke, a smile, or a friendly word. My heart has been breaking since, I got the call. During this time I am sending thoughts and prayers to his wife, children, and family. He will forever be in my heart.
