Johnny, Ron, Lynn, Henry, Diane and family,

You are in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time. Our thoughts are with you in this time of sorrow and we hope you can find comfort in the loving memories of Henry. There are few who could compare to Henry. We will miss him enormously as our neighbor. That smiling face from across the street with the gentile wave we will miss the most. We are grateful Henry that you allowed us to be apart of your life, if only for a little while. Rob, Sebastian and I have wonderful memories of you.

With Love,

Rob, Jackie and Sebastian Mey
