Eulogy:
Very few people touch the lives of so many. No matter how busy Grandpa was he would always make time for his family and friends. He would always answer the phone saying, 'Jason my man!' with the enthusiasm that only he had. He had a story for everything and never failed to give me life altering advice. He has been a mentor, a friend, a father figure, and so much more that words don't give justice. I would not be the person I am today without his guidance. I truly am blessed to have been so close to a man like Henry Allen. My grandpa, Henry Allen,is the best man I've ever known.

I knew Henry from sitting beside him at many Thanksgivings where we all ate too much. I knew him from celebrating countless birthdays, where he never complained about being with my family. We spent many Christmas' with him, listened to stories and drank a little, sometimes a little more.

I'll miss his bear hugs, his big smile and his deep greetings. Maybe I took him for granted because he was always there. My only regret is not spending more time with him. I know I could of learned a lot.

He WILL be missed and when I see that empty chair next time, I'll know he is in our hearts. I feel honored to have shared him with you all.

I knew a very different Henry Allen than most of you knew. He was my great uncle and I had the privilege of seeing him come home every year or so. I still got to hear all of his wonderful stories. He was a man with so much knowledge and everyone he came in contact with, he made sure to share that knowledge with them. I will miss him. I will miss him for my grandmother. I am so glad he was able to spend time with my daughter. I am so glad coming back to his home place made him happy. I am privileged to have known him. He is one of the reasons that I am where I am today. Thank you Henry for the things you did for me. Look in on us from time to time. I love you.
