    Dear Hanson family
    Patty is my tie to Howard and the Hansons in Omaha. Patty shared pictures, and the many good time she had while visiting with you all as well as her dad, Howard. Howard will not be forgotten. Everytime I see his John Deere anniversary baseball cap I will think of Howard Hanson. Much love and caring from lots of folks in Colorado

    Grandpa you were an amazing man and inspiration. I only hope I can be half the man you were. You are loved by many and will be missed dearly. May you rest in peace next to the good Lord.

    My sympathy to all of his family though I am sure probably none will recognize my name except for his brothers. Howard and I last saw each other when seated at the same table for a week at a care center, and it was good to catch up on family news. Myrna and I were cousins, but I knew everyone as fellow Dunlap neighbors. Blessings, Delores

    Rest In Peace Uncle Howard. I have such wonderful memories and they will live on in my heart. I am sure you are catching up on old times up there. Until we meet again. All my love to your family
