Uncle Henry we will miss you but we are sure you are in Paradise straightening out the "kids" and being reunited with many old friends. We love you uncle Henry but we are blessed because as Paul said "we do not grieve as those who have no hope" Your love for the Lord was always there for all of us to see and draw strength from.
