This is a bit late but I want to say that Henry and Barbara were folks that meant a lot to me. After retiring from the Army and retiring to my wife’s hometown, Henry would come to my place and work on keeping up the plants and woods. He also designed a way for me to hang garden tools in my garage. I guess he wanted me to be organized like he was. Our common military backgrounds led us to share our love for America in a way that showed me that he was like my Dad, a WWII era vet and retiree. Barbara and Henry used to walk on Main St a lot and I would run into them almost every week. When they didn’t show I would call and get an update from Barbara. They were two of the finest people I ever knew and our time together was very special to me. May they rest in the Peace of the Lord forever,
