Deepest sympathy to the family of a dear friend and co-worker.

Barb, Mark and family, our deepest sympathy go out to you. Henry was brother,father and friend to me. He sacrificed so much to keep the family together when Dad died and left Mom with 4 young boys to raise. He got a hardship discharge from the Air Force to work in the mines to pay our bills,and after he got the family somewhat stable he was drafted into the Army during the Korean War. and he continued to support the family with his allotment. Henry loved golfing at Myrtle Beach and he made it so much fun for everyone. I am so glad I got to spend that time with him and his buddies. So, Goodby Henry, someday we will meet again, God bless,Bob and Betty
