Our Dear Hank, A Quiet Leader

We never dreamed that just a few days after sharing, What Matters Most After You’re Gone, we would so suddenly lose one of our own.

Hank Sasser led quietly.

And the thing about quiet leaders is that we aren’t fully aware of their influence until we are in the midst of their absence.

Oh, how we are hearing from so many about how that quiet and humble spirit made such an impact!

It was an impact that was subtle and unique; one person, one relationship at a time.

We knew that Hank would grow into an amazing leader. What we didn’t realize was the difference he was already making at his young age. 

Hank embodied the best qualities of those who loved him most. His easy-going nature. His friendly smile. His willingness to listen. His eagerness to learn. His quiet influence. His enthusiasm for adventure. His kindness toward others.

Now we resolve to ensure those qualities live on through us. We hope you are inspired to do the same.

We are brokenhearted. But we also know that with God, hope remains.

Hank left this life for Glory on August 23, 2014. He is the middle child of Keven and Linda Sasser, little brother to Katie McCarthy, big brother to Jeri Sasser. His family covets your prayers and their privacy at this time.
