To all of Mr. Hanley’s numerous relatives and loved ones, Please accept my warmest condolences in this time of loss and sorrow. Mr. Hanley truly touched the heart of many, my heart also as he kindly ministered to me greatly taking the time to communicate to me on more than one occasion a spontaneous unexpected outburst of wonderful memoirs he had of my Dad that I would not have known had it not been for William Hanley’s generous and kind spirit towards my father and I. He took the time to give me a more complete picture of my Dad in other areas of his life even before I was born whom he described himself as a Real Man, a good Man, a strong Man Most importantly a kind Man. I truly appreciated and respected this humorous kind no nonsense man, William Hanley;. His bubbly uplifting character and his straight forward to the point communication that all True Pointers seem to be gifted with myself included. He was a friend to my Dad, Stewart McLean of Point St. Charles and a friend to me. I pray God comforts you all in this difficult time and that he forever lives in your hearts and memories. God Bless
