Hank's older sister, Irene, who served as the original 'Drifting Cowboys' first
booking agent in the early days,
passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 24, 1995 at the age of 73.
Although she was a very private person,
I was privileged to maintain communications with Irene
for almost twenty years. The following copy of a letter
received from her in 1978, admirably illustrates her gracious and helpful nature
Please note: The addresses shown in the above letter are genuine, however
no longer functional
