Our prayers and sympathies are extended to the friends and family of Hans Lenz.
Wayne, Irma and family - I'm so sorry for your sudden loss! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Although I didn't know Hans beyond an acquaintance, he was always quick with a wave & a smile when he'd see me pass by his house on my way to work. I'll miss seeing him in his beloved red Dodge truck.
