Oh dear Uncle Henry, how you will be missed. Your constant pranks and just plain silliness will never fade in my heart or memories. You leave behind such precious people, including my favorite person, Aunt Betty, who was like a second mom to me. Heaven just got a little bit sweeter and a whole lot funnier! Love you!

Although I only met "Pap" once, his influence on my dear friend, Amie, was admirable. Amie absolutely adored him. It's evident that he was one of her biggest fans. He came to support Ella in a softball tournament and I could tell there was no where else he'd rather be. He was special, for sure. I'm sure that's why Cale Henry carries his name. Rest in Paradise, sweet man. I know you will be cheering on Amie, Ella and Cale Henry from heaven. 💙
