Henry was our neighbor and friend, always doing things for us. There is now a great emptiness where his presence once was and we miss him. We were so blessed to have such a good neighbor as Henry and our friendship was too short.We will miss seeing him working in his tomato garden, mowing the grass and rocking on the back porch. Our love, support and prayers are with Judy, Jennifer and family at this difficult time. We know Henry's presence with the Lord will be rewarding. In Christian Love and Sincere Sympathy.

I was sorry to hear about Henry passing away. Enjoyed the times we spent together @ the Suffolk's Elks Lodge and as a past member of the Progressive Men's Club. He sure loved Kentucky basketball. He will be missed by all of his friends. My prayers go out to the family. Thomas Moore

This is to express sincere condolences to the family and all who are touch by Henry's passing. I'm truly saddened despite only having worked with him off and on over the past year. Great story teller. Great laugh, personality, and full of zeal for sharing his knowledge with others. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
