Henry was the best father "n" law ever. He was a special man who was so kind and caring towards me. He always helped me fix things that were broke and was always willing to take me anywhere I needed to be. I am comforted in knowing Henry is with the Lord now and I will see him some day, but until that day, I have great memories that I will cherish. You will be missed but never forgotten...Love you Shirley
