You have my deepest condolences in the passing of Henry. I worked with Henry way back at Sprint Yellow pages.
He was a great man who everyone just loved. He was kind, generous and most of all very caring about others. I remember when
he was planning on getting married to Ruth how he would talk about it all the time. I lost touch with him in the past few
years, but always thought about how he was doing. Now to you Henry rest in peace my friend and I'll just say good bye
for now and someday hopefully I'll see you again. You were a great human being.
Jeanne (Swope) Gilbert
