This is hard, saying good bye. No, this isn’t good bye, this is just until we meet again. I remember making you brownies for when you went out on the road in your big truck. Being a childhood friend with your daughter, TT, I’ve always felt like family. I always loved our conversations. You will always be in my heart and you will never be forgotten. Love you Henry! We will see each other in the kingdom of Heaven one day so have some brownies for me when I get there. Crystal

You always took us girls out to eat. I remember one Thanksgiving we wanted to cook for you and you said as far back as you could remember us girls was always in the kitchen cooking on Thanksgiving for everybody and you weren’t taking no for an answer, we were all going out to eat on you and you took us to a real nice place with good food that reminded us of Nanny. You always took my calls and if by chance you missed one, you called me back. You protected me and didn’t want me to cry. I could write a book so I’ll just say, until we meet again.

You will never know the heaviness in my heart . It’s so hard to belive your relly gone. As kids we did some fun crazy thing ? like me trying to make you walk home when you broke your leg. The year we did not get a easter basket and Mom trying to get you to take a bath, when you finally went in and pulled the curtain back , you found a tub full of baskets for all of us. I’ll miss you my brother ?. Maybe Mom had a Easter basket for you in heaven. I’ll see again,until then I love you. Joyce
