My Condolences to the whole Mills Family, Have been an employee for 20 years, nothing but good things to say, Have met both Hank and Stew on more then one occasion.but I will never forget what he said to me the first time I met him just shortly after I started working there. I was 7 months pregnant and working service counter. He came up to me and introduced himself and asked how far along I was. I told him and all he said to me was " Take care of yourself and your family, they come first no matter what." As an employee we have always been treated like family! A Wonderful man and a great place to work. He will be missed. Hugs and Prayers to them all!

My sincere condolences to the entire Mills family; Hank was a truly good man and impacted many, many lives. I have had very little interaction with him during my 10-1/2 years at the Appleton office, but everyone I know who has been there for a long time and knew him when he was very involved in the company has told me what a wonderful, caring and genuine person he was. Makes me wish I had started working there earlier. RIP Hank -- you will be missed, but Heaven just welcomed a pretty special angel.
