Grandpa Henry was a big part of my life as Margaret his daughter(my aunt)is only 6 months apart in age we grew up together. I remember going to church events, parades and always being together for the holidays. Grandpa had such a strong testimony of the church and wished only the best for all of us. I know he is with my grandma Eva in heaven and has nothing but smiles. You will be missed, love you.

Uncle Henry was my mom's last surviving brother and I admired and respected him very much. He was a good Christian man who will be missed by many.

My brother was such a strong solid man. He remained productive and active to the end. He never complained about his loss of sight. I would tell Henry that God knew He could trust Henry with the loss of sight, where, with me, God knew I would be kicking and screaming. Not my brother. He was faithful to the end, never a word of complaint not feeling sorry for himself. He sacrificed his entire life with money and time and energy for his family and God. He taught me so much, things I would not know, except for Henry. He worked hard all his life, never slowed down, even after losing his sight. He was a witness for the Lord by example, as well as verbally. If ever anybody deserved to be called a saint, it was my brother, Henry. I am not nearly ready to give him up, selfish person that I am. He will be laid to rest in Greenwood Cemetary in San Diego on Wednesday, December 1, at 11 a.m. for anyone who wishes to attend this celebration in Henry's honor.

My grandpa was truly an amazing man. I will always remember his firm handshakes and his calm tone that seemed to always make me feel safe and secure. The joke around the house was not to let grandpa Henry shake your hand unless you wanted to dislocate your arm - it was just that strong. He never missed an important event in my life - he was always there. His faith in the church and in the family will live on with us forever. He will greatly be missed and forever be in my heart. I love you Grandpa!

We have fond memories of working with Brother Ashley and his sweet wife in the Atlanta Temple. He was such an inspiration to all of us. He never seemed to get discouraged in the face of adversity. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
