Due to unforeseen circumstances Linda, Audrey and I were not able to show you how much your father would be missed. I can not express in words what your Dad meant to me and all the help i recieved from him and your mom while i was going to nursing school. He will surely be missed. You all have wonderful parents, but i know you already knew that. Our family loved them both. Thank you for sharing them over the years. Elaine

i have so many good memories of both Henry and Dorothy. I cant tell you how many times he stopped what he was doing at the station to put air in the tires of my bike or to get me a moon pie and a coke and never complained one time. He was a good man and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Henry. He was absolutely a wonderful man. I waited on Henry alot whenever he would come into the Canmer Bank at that time and he was always whistleing and happy. My Dad (Wrendle Jones) and My Grandfather (Paul Crain or D.P.) would loaf at the Station there in Hardyville. I know he will very much be missed and I will never forget the good memories of him. Certainly a Good Man!
