To Juanita and Family
I was saddened to read of Henry's passing. The two of you were dear to me, especially while we were at NIH. You have my deepest sympathy; and I pray that you are consoled by the many wonderful and loving memories you shared. God just made your Angel and he will always watch over you with love.
