I am sorry Jim to hear of your moms passing. Not sure why I was reading through the obituaries, but came accross your moms notice.
Again, sorry for your loss

Mike and I were traveling and had no idea of Barbs passing. I'm so very sorry. Such a wonderful lady with a wonderful group of children. Hugs and love to all

We had planned to drive from Bennington to Philadelphia this morning for the Service, however the weather had alternate plans. I am heartbroken at not being able to express my condolences in person.

The phrase "flatlanders" is thrown around frequently in the Vermont vernacular. Typically it is meant to refer to those who move here, bringing their "big city" ideas to "corrupt" our pristine little state. Jim and Barb arrived in Bennington from Philadelphia/Jersey shore via Long Island, which is about as "flat" as you can get. For forty plus years they became woven into the Bennington fabric; raising nine children who all attended/graduated from local schools. The Henrys did not simply live in Bennington, they dove in headfirst. They interacted, they worked, they volunteered, they learned, they gave, and gave some more. Through their actions, they promoted their concept of citizenship. Be involved, learn, question the status quo, but in a manner that doesn't push folks away. The lives of many in this community were and are impacted by those concepts, and by these people. The Henry's gave more than they took from the Bennington Community. Our town is better for having them.

I had the good sense, and good fortune to be able to buy two paintings from Barb about 6 years ago. They hang in my home this morning. Her creativity, her passion, her willingness to take a risk or two, stare me in the face every day. I am better for having them.
