Henrietta, Patty and Brandon:
I am so sorry to hear about Henry’s death. Know that he is at rest and not hurting anymore. I don’t ever remember him not having that smile on his face even when he was feeling bad. The joking manner he had. I always had to be on my game around him because I never knew when he’d toss a joke at me and I’d have to figure it out so I could toss it right back at him! One of my favorite uncles for sure! I’ll miss him very much! But I know he’s not hurting anymore and fishing with those hard headed brothers of his! But they are having the best time right now!!
Henrietta, Patty, Brandon
Without a doubt when Uncle Henry took hold of the eternal life the flesh stopped fighting and he was baptized in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost, through those days of trials and suffering he kept his focus and waited
and that shows me a true man of God. There is a deep emptiness in my soul, I know that boat was waiting for him and now is filled, my dad and the other uncles were waiting I just know, watch out up there in heaven they are some pretty awesome fisherman. Precious memories, how they linger.
I am so so sorry for your loss Henrietta. My thoughts are with you and the rest of your family in this time of need. I will always remember that wonderful smile Henry always had on his face! He was such a great man and will be missed dearly by so many people.
