MaryJane and family, We were very saddened to hear of Henry's passing. Many of us who reside here have many fond memories from the years growing up with Henry in St. Paul. Today, at our senior curling league, many of us reminisced about our high school and early adult years when Henry was such a prominent figure on the local curling scene... I personally also remember our hockey playing days from that same era... May knowing that we remember him as a friend help ease the sorrow you are feeling as you mourn his passing.
