    He will definitely be missed. I remember many times as a child I would spend time in the summer at their house. He was a wonderful man always made everyone feel welcome and loved. RIP We love you.

    I know how it feels to lose not just a friend but a family member. There’s a hole in the heart that can never be filled. My love goes out to Diana, Teresa,and the rest of the family.

    I have so many memories of going down south to mom’s family in Tenn. But only every other summer. My Dad was a northern.so we had to go north to. But my favorite times were spent at Hansford & Margies house. I remember when they had pigs down in the back. Hansford was taking them to the Bucher &they got losses Diana,Teresa& myself ran to climb to the top of the hay were they couldn’t get us & all the rides in the back of his truck up those hills & down were you left your stomach. He would look back their & He & my dad would laugh at us.it was always great times at their house. He always made sure you felted right at home.oh yeah Hansford was the one that got me to try tomatoes& gravy . I always said gross when he made his plate. He said now you better try this girl before you say gross.took awhile but all it took was once. I love it !! I do have alot of great memories of him.I will remember them always with a smile. I’m sure my Dad & Hansford are in heaven working on something .Always remember him with a smile one great man. I’m so sorry that I can’t be there with all of you & your Aunt Marie wishes she could be there with Ya’ll to. She just can’t make that trip anymore. Love Ya’ll know our Hearts are with you all.
