That picture is just as he looked Fri, when he told us he was ready to meet Jesus. He is safely Home but, oh, how we will miss him. His knowledge of Scripture, his great sense of humor and most of all, his love for God. He was an example for all. Hank, I will keep you in my prayers for you and your whole family. Love you.

Margaret and family, Dena's and my thoughts are with you. O Lord, support us all the day long, until shadows lengthen and evening comes, until the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then, in your mercy, grant us a holy rest and peace in your heart.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Hank and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Roy was in our lives while he served at WEMI and made an impact in them. We are thankful for the time he spent with us in spreading God's word through our airwaves and for the direction he gave the ministry. We know that he is at home with theLord and is dancing. We celebrate with all of you the life Roy lead and we will miss him. God bless each of you

What a great guy. I have missed him and Hank since we moved south so long ago. It was uplifting just to be around them. He will be missed, but not for long. I know where he is and terms of eternity, not far away. May the Lord comfort you, Hank.

Hank, my heart is heavy with the sad news that you have lost Roy, but he is in a much better place now. . In these words of Helen Keller, Roy will always be with us: "What we have enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Lovingly, Pat & Tom Makofski
