  1. He will always be remembered as you share the stories and the memories of how he lived his life and how very much he meant, may you find comfort…And, throughout this difficult time, may you also know the deep sympathy and concern that is felt for you and all your family. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

  2. Dear Ann, I was so sorry to hear of your loss; hope you and your family find comfort in each other and the memories you share. I am the daughter of Hampden "Hank" S. Mann Jr. and just last week ran across a picture of "Pete" as a small boy with his Father and Grandfather. I would love to share a copy with your family and will try to send at a more suitable time. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

  3. We extend our sincere condolences to the family of Col. Mann who was a great southern gentleman and friend to his extended Petersburg battlefield family. He will be greatly missed.
