Though we never know Why God chooses to take us when he does, we are assured that he has a place for us in heaven. Jesus tells us "in my Father's house there are many rooms." I hope Henry gets one overlooking the woods where his banjo can sing once again.
Love and Prayers,
Shari and family

My sincere condolences to all the family and friends. I have great memories of Henry (known as Sonny then) when we attended Big Branch of Abbott Creek one room school back in the 1940's. He was my best friend during that time and I have high regard for him. After grade school we went our separate ways and did not have any contact during our adult life. I am so thankful however that he did come to visit with me a couple of times the last few years. I enjoyed his visits very much and look forward to seeing him again on the other side.
