I only knew Henry for awhile but he was a person who had such an effect on you when you meet him. His smile and the love he had for god and his family was amazing. I will miss you Henry but you are gone to a better home. My prayers and condolences to the families

David Hall

I will always remember Henry for his gentleness and kindness. He showed what it meant to follow the commandment to love God and neighbour even through Facebook when distance separated us. Prayers for the blessing and peace Henry is now experiencing to his family.
