Our prayers and condolences🙏❤ I've known Harry since birth(46 years). Harry & Ruby lived next door to us. This is how I met my lifelong best friend forever, their granddaughter Sheri. Harry,Ruby,and family meant a great deal to us and were right there for us many times throughout the years; especially when my mother was killed in an auto accident that I was involved in with her. They really helped my dad out and also kept an eye out for me as well growing up. Harry and family were also there for me after my dad passed away in 2014. The Hendersons were salt of the Earth people, very special indeed. I am very thankful this family always included us like family and will treasure so many good memories of our lives out on Old Myers Road(I know my dad and Harry would want their road spelled correctly👀👌😊). I hope they are sharing some laughs and a good cup of coffee right now. I used to call Harry "Grandpa" when I was little until one day not long after Sheri was born he said to me "Now you know you I'm not really your grandpa right?" so I said "Ok Uncle Harry"🤗 he liked to tell me that story sometimes when I'd see him so I am signing off for now until that great getting up morning 🌄 ✝ 🕊 🙏 Rest peacefully in his arms "Grandpa" "Uncle" Harry❤
With Love and many Thanks, The Jackson Family.
