There are many things I'll remember about Hank, but the one that will always stay w/me was the last time I saw and spoke w/him. I went to visit him at the therapy hospital, threw on a light cotton dress as it was at least 102 degrees, when I walked into his room he looked at me plane as day and said "pretty dress Onie".....he always called me Onie, that was the last I spoke w/him. I will never forget that
