    We will miss him and his dearly loved companion of almost 12 years Donna R Damron Cowsert survives him also. They loved each other deeply, his absence will be felt by us all. He was my “step-dad ” and “Papaw Hansel”to my children and my grandchildren. He loved them like his own and they adored him. He was a great part of our lives over the years…. Donna lost her best friend and love of her life. He was the best!
