    Dear Aunt Ruth and Family, We are so sad to hear of Uncle Henry’s passing. We was such a caring gentle person. I like many remember his heart warming prayers at family gatherings. I was just talking to Uncle Lloyd the other day and he told me of the wonderful times Uncle Henry had with my Dad. Such great memories and stories. Now they are together. We are thinking of you and love you very much. God Bless you xoxo Cheryl, John and Family

  • Ron & LouDell Posein says:

    Many wonderful memories of your Dad. He was kind hearted, soft spoken, sincere and had a jolly disposition. Laughing seemed to be such a normal part of his life. Our condolences to you all as a family and especially to your Mom.

    Dear Ruth & family,
    I have many wonderful memories of the friendships we shared over the years. As you mourn
    the Loss of your Loved One I am praying the Lord will comfort you with His PEACE; surround you
    with His LOVE and encourage you with His PRESENCE. All my love, Liz
