    I want to offer my sincere condolences to you and your family for your loss of Hans. I just found out about his passing in January. Hans will be missed by those that were his friends in the former Elmhurst Männerchor. He always had a great smile and a kind word for my wife and me through the years. I was always happy to see him at our practices, concerts and club events. He brought out smiles and cheer. His contribution as a tenor brought happy years of his participation since September 2003. I will miss him.
    Respectfully yours, Gary Johnson
