So sorry to hear of Henry's passing. I knew Henry and Nolan from school days at Natalbany in the '50s and in high school. He was two years ahead of me in school and he was always kind to everyone he met. We didn't see each other for many years but in the late 90's and early 2000's he bought hay from me and it was good to renew the friendship and talk about old times. I pray that that the Lord will give strength to the family, comfort them during this time of grief and guide them in the days to come.nBRE2

To Linda and all Henry's family members: Henry was a great human being. We lived in the same farm community, attended the same churches and went to school together. Although Henry was younger than I, we ended up in the same grade at Natalbany Elementary. You see, Henry was so smart, the school put him up a year. He was a good student and a good academic rival.(I'm still kind of mad about that spelling bee championship! lol) Even though he was quiet, he had a funny side and was a great friend to everyone. We will miss you, Henry. To his family, May God bless and keep you. Brenda Crayton Giacone
