Henry will be missed and we are so glad that we had the opportunity to get acquainted! Although we had only known him for the last few years, we are grateful we had the chance to visit and hear some of his stories which we will cherish! May God give you and the family peace and comfort during this time.

Dawn and Family,
Mom wanted me to include her in our condolences to you on Henry's passing. She has fond memories of many of the kids that went to Draper. And, she's still trying to feed all of us who see her regularly! Wishing you peace as you move forward. We know Henry has earned his peace as he rests in God's heaven. Virginia Hall and Cathy
