Laughter comes to mind with Henry’s wry wit and comedic comments. We see him as a devoted and caring Life Partner to Ginny.
Our mutual journey to Russia is one we Long remember with laughter, merriment and wonder!!!!Walking gingerly past the armored guards in Leningrad Square and accident taking photos of Lenin!! The guards almost got the KGB after us . It was Verbotin to take any photos!

We shall miss his enduring smile. Henry was a good, loyal, stoic and loving friend
He was (to us) a Trusted friend who was family!! We loved you, Henry.

Rest In Peace, Dearest Henry.
Job well done, o good and faithful
servant.
Your Loving Friends,
Diane, Ron And Gayle Gruber
