Our sympathy to all the Bonnigson family on your loss. Mom and dad loved going to Amish country with Hank and hearing all his wonderful stories. I am sure mom and Hank are reminiscing and laughing at all the good times, like the time they got mom in a wagon pulled by the Clydedales. Cherish the memories and continue to tell the stories to keep him near your heart. God Bless.

Dear Cousins, It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to send our deepest sympathy to each and every one of you. Mom feels terrible that she is unable to be in Ohio at this time. Believe me if she could she would have been there. I hope all the memories (and there are many) bring you peace and comfort. Love, Carla

To the Bonningson Family... I am so very sorry to hear of your dad's passing.... I wish I would be able to attend the services.. but I am presently in California working.... Hank was truly an awesome and special guy.... I was so blessed to have shared some really great moments with him at the Sandusky Co. Fair for so many years..... I still remember him telling my dad...."Al, when are you going to get your daughter a horse?" and my dad would tell him to be quiet!!!! Yes,,, we will all miss him dearly but he and your mom will always remain in my heart as with you all too.... God Bless and know I am thinking of him.... and I think he would definitely be proud to know that I am now teaching kids of special needs on horseback here in California,,,,, Love you all!!!! cousin,,,, Sue Quick
