Jerry and Family:
I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. My deepest condolences to all.
Dorothy:I Was So Saddened To Hear About Your Dads Passing, I Know That He Is In A Better Place But I Know That You Will Miss Him Dearly Our Thoughts And Prayers Are With All Of You Love Marlene And Family.
What fond memories I have, not only growing up next door to Rev. Hanna but of his visit to see me in Denver. We had a great time, didn't we Mrs. Hanna? My love & prayers to Mrs. Hanna, Jerry, Dorothy, & Margaret.
Sister Hanna, Jerry, Dorothy, Margaret and your families you are in our prayers. Brother Hanna meant so much to our family. His persona, his friendship, his faith and his servant spirit are things we talk about today, despite the fact that I have not seen Brother Hanna in over a decade. Last weekend, my family was together in Kansas City and Brenda and I asked Dad if he’d been in touch with Brother Hanna lately. His name came up often in our conversations. We’ll never forget the Valley Church home coming weekends, which really didn’t get started until Brother Hanna arrived. The gracious and supportive way he treated our family when we were singing will never be forgotten. He was our first pastor. Despite the fact that I cannot remember those days, I am thankful for the legacy he helped to establish.
May the Holy Spirit comfort you and your family.
I Would Like To Send My Thoughts And Prayers To My Cousin Bob Steele During This Difficult Time, God Bless You.
Brother Hanna was the minister to my mother, Marie Padron, my brother, Cruz Jr. and I, at Beverly Park General Baptist Church. I loved him dearly, as did my family. My prayers go out to all of his family but I assure you there is an awesome, joyful party in heaven now that Brother Hanna is there!
Sister Thelma you and your family are in our prayers. We thank God that we were allowed to share a small part of his life.
