Doris and Lembeck Family,

Sorry for your loss.
Always remember hearing my mother, Norma, and Aunt Rose Holmes talking about their visits with Doris and Henry.

Dear Doris and family,
We are so sad to read of the passing of our dear friend, Henry.
When we lived in your marina in the summer we always liked to talk to Henry and you whenever we got the chance. His fruits and vegetables that he sold from his truck in the driveway on 4th Street in Watkins were the best. Corn and tomatoes here his specialty. I remember when you came to our house for dinner. Our Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier, Oscar, took a real liking to Henry. I think Henry loved all animals big or small.
I remember your grand-son Nicholas when he was small.
Henry will always be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.
