God blessed many of us with Beverly Henderson. She treated me like her own daughter. She loved unconditionally and made everyone in her life feel right at home! She was so loving, so genuine, so kind, and so amazing beyond words. Frolic with the other angels, Beverly, and watch over your wonderful family. I love you!

I remember meeting your family in September, 1976 when my family moved to Hammond. You were getting ready to go to Florida for the Winter. I was to take over for Mrs. Henderson as organist at St. Peters' Church in Hammond After mass, I went up and Mrs. Henderson and I introduced ourselves. She showed me the organ and music and gave me some pointers. When you came back in the Spring, she told me to keep on as organist. I was s happy as I really enjoy making music. I'll always remember her for her kindness and gentleness. I'll always, also, be grateful for my dear friends, Debi and Pam.

Mrs. Henderson was a wonderful person who will definitely be missed. She was always busy working on her yard, housework, flowers or on her crossword puzzles. But no matter how busy she was, she always took time to enjoy friends and family.

Mrs. Henderson was the most amazing woman who loved life to the fullest. She was also the dear mother to my best friend of 35 years...Pam. My heart and prayers go out to her family. I hope treasured memories and knowing that she is in a better place help soothe your hearts.
