The few times I got to meet and spend time with Mr. Henry (the father of my good friend Kyle), I was struck by how thrilled he was to see Kyle, and how he smiled and laughed when I asked what it was like to be Kyle's Dad. It was lovely to see that love. All my love to Kyle and his family.

We extend our condolences to the Henry family. We consider Kyle and Carlos like our own - the sons we didn't have! So our love goes out to Elaine and all the siblings.

I'll miss Uncle Jim. Jim and Elaine were so kind to me many years ago when they took me in and helped me get started when I moved to League City. I'll miss you, Uncle Jim.
