    There are no words to express how sad we were to hear of Henry's passing! Henry was one of the kindest, would go out of his way to help you, like it's been said before a true gentleman and had so many other wonderful qualities! We, like I know so many other friends, family, etc., are truly going to miss him, but there will always be a special place in our hearts for him! May God bless Mary, the boys and give them strength during this very difficult time! Rest In Peace Sweet Henry!✝️
