    Pam & April, We were shocked and saddened to hear of Hans passing. He was a true gentleman in every respect. We were blessed to have him as our wedding photographer 38 years ago. He was a gifted recorder of beauty and life and leaves us with many warm memories through his character, deeds and art. Our thought and prayers are with you in your time of loss. Sincerely, Joan & Lewis Edwards

    Hans was a very talented photographer. He captured more than people and events he created memories. He added such beauty to the world. Our thought and prayers are with you. Nancy & Mike
