My condolences to the Hanafin family. Don's parents, Ma & Pa Hanafin, lived next door to my grandparents, Mom & Dad Pope, in Clever for years. The many Pope and Hanafin kids and grandkids became friends and many remained lifelong friends. So many memories of days gone by. Don and Ruby were such pleasant, enjoyable people. Extending my sympathy to the family at this sad time. Sincerely, Susan (Hays) Compton Republic MO
