Hans Milton Hansen

Utah, USA
Death: Jul. 25, 1967
Spokane

Washington, USA

On the morning of his Golden (50th) Wedding Anniversary, Hans Milton Hansen wrote the following words:
As I woke this morning of June 26, 1966, I was thinking back to June 26, 1916. Don't seem long and then I think about Zig-Zag road Mom and I started out on. And of the good and bad turns in that road for that short 50 years. I think mostly of the wonderful four sons and three daughters placed in our care for such short periods of times. And I think of the poor and humble start you all had. I think of each one of you right from the begining on through. And of the great accomplishments you have all made. I think of this world of trouble and crimes. You have walked the straight and narrow. I am writing this because my emotions are too great to tell you my appreciations of what you have all done and the records you have made sure stand ehangiling.
