Henry was such a sweet guys. He remembered who I was even years after we graduated. Gave me discount when ordering food. He was always looking out for me and my kids when he would see us. I didn’t hang out with him much in school but the kindness he showed everyone lasted as forever memories! RIP good sir!

Sincere sympathy on the death of your son. May God comfort you at this time of loss.

I love you Henry, you will always be in my heart. Love Grandma

Such a shock to learn about Henry. He was very friendly and I loved talking "dogs" with him. He was so excited when Hershey had her puppies last summer. May you find love and support at this time.

Henry was a kind soul. He was a passionate about his dogs and took loving care of Bessie. My condolences to Deb and Bessie and the whole family. He will be missed.

Henry have not got to see you since a party at Aunt Debbie but so proud of the young man you became love You Henry Aunt Wilma

Henry, you are the greatest friend anyone can ever have and I'm glad I got to have you for a best friend. We did so much together over the last 15 years and still had so much to do yet. I am currently taking care of your dogs as I would do anything for you brother. You saved my life multiple times just by being there for me through some of the most difficult times. I remember when we used to go to your house and play the newest games when you got them and all the awesome food you used to serve me when I came over or when we went to PA to get Hershey as well as many other adventures we went on together. I will always remember all the good times with you bub. Until we meet again my ninja. Fly high and rest in peace my brother. I love you always and forever, your brother, Hawaiian

It's been many years but I'll always keep Henry in a special place in my heart. Sending my Love and praying God comforts our broken hearts.

You will forever be in our hearts . We love you . Aunt Debbie and Uncle Mark

I was so sorry to find out about the loss of Henry. I can vividly remember him in my third/fourth grade class at Cornerstone. He was the sweetest, cutest little boy. After all these years, I still remember his little round-faced smile. :) I'm sending comforting thoughts to his family.

Henry worked as a custodian at our church for quite a while. He was always eager to help. Sad to hear that he's gone. He loved to talk to people and share stories about his adventures. He was so happy when he brought Hershey back from PA. They liked their walks together. Grace and peace for everyone who was touched by his life.
