  1. Attended Father Hank’s memorial service at Emmanuel Episcopal today. He was a great, kind, caring, gentle, intellegent man. His presence will be missed by many. While my children attended Episcopal Day School they attended chapel twice a week with Father Hank leading the service. One of our favorite songs ever was Seek Ye First. Listening to the children of the school sing this song in a round was much like what I envision angels singing to be like. Funny how this memorize this verse came to me today.
