To all the family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time. I have known Henry for fifty years and what an honor it has been. One of his daughters, Rosana, was one of my closest friends in high school so I got to spend a lot of time at the McCoy household. Wow, are there some stories during those years. I can tell you that Rosana and I did not give Henry near the early grey hairs as Maureen and Glenda did. We were angels compared to those two. I want to commend Maureen on her love, dedication, and caregiving that she gave to her father during the last few years of his life. She did a wonderful job and I know that Henry really appreciated it. Henry is now with Ellen and no longer in any pain or discomfort. I pray for God to help all of you with strength and comfort as you navigate through this loss. God Bless the family and my love to all of you.

Henry, you are a very special person to me. I met you when I was 13 years old and through the years you have made a huge impact on my life. I eventually came to work for McCoy when I was 21 and never looked back. I can honestly say, without a doubt in my mind, that I spent 43 of the best years of my life working at McCoy with the most amazing people. I loved the experiences and challenges that came along the way. I have so many wonderful memories of you. You were a compassionate and understanding Father. You have an amazing daughter that loves you and has taken such good care of you in the past years. She loves you so much. Maureen and I did a lot of things that you might or might not have been proud of but you were always understanding and we knew without a shadow of a doubt that you still loved us. Thank you Henry McCoy for being a part of my life and I will never forget you and Ellen and what you both stood for! Such amazing people! I love you so much!

My love,

Henry, as I grew to know him, was a cordial and engaging gentleman. Where we the best of friends, no, but friends we were and conversations with him could and often did go in numerous directions as this was a man who led an exciting life allowing him to draw from a treasure-trobe of experiences and I would always come away feeling as though I’d learned something.

Down the road, my friend....
