Cheryl, Brian and Slade,
I am so sorry to hear of Henry's passing. I lost my Mom New Years eve so I know what pain you're all going through.
I just found out about Henry from Mike Lingo. So glad he called or I wouldn't have been able to tell y'all how sorry I am and offer my deepest sympathy to the entire family.
I worked a lot of years with Henry and I liked him a lot. He was a good friend. I think of him and of you Cheryl and I'm glad he was there with you. Henry sometimes could be a little difficult but he was good inside and that's what counts.
I'm sorry I won't be able to attend the funeral because I will be working in Foley, AL. If there's anything I can do for you Cheryl, please don't hesitate to call me. I'm still living in Chipley and have the same number as always. 334 701-4036
Your friend, Bob
