Gene, Diane, Mike, and Joan,

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of your dad. He had a wonderful life and family. I used to enjoy talking with him twice a year when I would pass election materials door to door in Bon Air. He always slowed me down because we would talk about what Bon Air used to be like and that would kill a good half hour, but I enjoyed our conversations. Again, please accept my condolences.

God bless Uncle Hank and his family. I have fond memories of visiting your house when we were kids. How wonderful that he lived such a long life to enjoy time with his children and grandchildren. It was so nice to see him at my dad's funeral a few years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Love, Peggy

We were sorry to learn about Hank's death. My Dad liked talking to him on the phone. Hank was best man at my parent's wedding (Joe and Jean Brown). Hank was Dad's cousin.

Dear Cousins,
So sorry to hear about Uncle Hank. When I heard of his passing it made me realize that he was the last of mom's brothers and sisters. He was a good man. I remember that he loved cars, and he had a Fiat long ago that he was working on. Funny the things you remember as a kid. I hope all of you are doing well. Take care,
Anne Louise

Dear Gene, Diane, Joan and Michael,

We were so sorry to hear about your Fathers passing. We most recently saw him in July 2011 while driving around Bon Air with Mom. Uncle Hank was outside and was happy that we came by. Our deepest sympathy to all of the Hutsky family.

Dear Gene, Diane. Michael and Joan,

My deepest condolences on the loss of your dad. I spoke to him the summer of 2011 when we took Mom for a ride through Bon Air. Uncle Hank always enjoyed the porch! Aunt Helen sends her condolences, also. She is at Saint Andrews Village here near me in Indiana.

With sympathy,
Cousin Cindy
