Henry Son Brother Nephew and friend to all. We still miss you and always will these past two years we have all missed your smile your company. Dad
Henry you will always be remembered
you are still deeply missed and thought of often
Hard to believe it's been a year since you left us brother... We had some great times and I wish we could have had a lot more. I'll always miss you.
Today marks the day we lost a great man. Still think of you daily. I was thinking of how much you loved to go through the Wendy's drive thru backwards just for fun. Miss you.
I know this legacy book won't be up for ever but your memory and spirit will. I love you brother and I will never forget you.. Jonny
Woke up today with a heavy heart and a lump in my throat. I think of you often Hen, I know you're at peace now, but the sadness of losing you is as fresh today as it was a year ago. Sending love to your family and friends today as we remember your too-short life. Love you always!
Last year on this day was your last day on earth. I know you are now safe and enjoying everlasting life. My heart aches as I think about you every morning and every night with love Dad
There is not very many days that go by that we don't think about you Hen, as a matter of fact just about everytime I turn the water on at my kitchen sink. I still have that lovely card you sent us there on the window seal, just can't bear to put it away. Your like the son we never had. So sad and miss you so much. Wish Heaven wasn't so far away, I would visit you today.
We're closing in on a year since you left us, and you are still thought of everyday.
I still think about you every day buddy, sometimes like you are still here. I want to call you up and complain about a job, or go get some Qdoba right before they close because we both had a long day and it just sounded good. You were a great tradesman, one of the best, but you were an even better friend. I'll always miss you brother.
As time goes by things should be easier. But you are still in my thoughts everyday. Miss you Hen.
I think about you all the time and wish I could have done something to help ease your pain that would make it so your goofy self was still here with all of us making us laugh. Love you always Hen.
No words can describe how shocked and upset I was when Meghan called me today. Henry was our Godchild. We moved and lost touch. She has been on my mind so much lately and I was trying to track her down. She, thank God, called my in-laws and got my number. To say I am sorry, is just not enough. I can not imagine what it is to lose a child especially one as loving, caring and fun loving as Henry. Since the call, I can't tell you how many prayers I have said for all of you. Please know that I am thinking of all of you and I love all of you.
You are one of the most excellent and genuine men that I have known. I have lost touch with just about everyone from Quaker Valley but had been thinking of you for months wanting to track you down and say hello - just found this news upon finally making the search. I learned to love and respect horses from you, Henry, and I will always remember your fearlessness in being your funloving, outspoken self, with little care of what others thought. Remember pouring your grandad his big Old Milwaukee can into his favorite frosty mug? Love you bud.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Henry's family . We will all miss Henry's friendship & warm smile.
God Bless .
John, Linda, Kristin and Brendan Lednak
Still miss you and thinking about you. Merry Christmas bud.
My sincere sympathy to the Dufala family.
Henry was like another son to me. I will miss his beautiful smile and love of life! Michele Nichols Sewickley
To my dear friend Meghan, the pain of loosing a child cannot be measured. I have no words of wisdom; only my love & support. You & your beautiful Henry are in my thoughts, daily.
Henry - You had a beautiful and uplifting personality that I will never forget. As I close my tear filled eyes, I can still see your beautiful smile that could light the darkest day. I have always treasured the times we spent together, though they were years ago. My Memories of you & the time we shared will always have a special place in my heart. May your sweet & kind soul rest in peace.
My deepest sympathy to your family & all who knew you. Henry you are greatly miss & will never be forgotten.
Dear Meghan and Allen,
My deepest sympathy.
Prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
Happy birthday to a guy who was loved by so many. I'll miss you every day buddy. You were a one of a kind guy that can never be replaced and will never be forgotten. Thanks for so many good laughs and for all of your support throughout the years
Happy Birthday to you Henry. May you rest in the peace that you deserve. So hard to let you go. We'll see you on the other side, neighbor! We miss and love you. Love, Chad & Courtney
Happy Birthday Uncle Hen we love you and miss you. Having a big dinner in your honor tonight. Love, little Henry, Katy and Paul
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEN!! Miss you birthday buddy. We will be raising our glass to you tonight.
Happy Birthday Henry. We love and miss you very much. You were like family to some of us...
Dear Meghan, Lucy, and Buzzy,
I was so sad to hear about Henry. He was very special to Mate and me. It was nice to see him last year at Mate's wake. I will always remember him as such a nice young man and will miss him very much. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Love, Veronika
Henry, my friend you are greatly missed. All of the good memories, wish we could add just one more. You are a wonderful person who cared so much for others. You will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace. Deepest sympathies to all of his many friends and family. - Joe
Henry I deeply miss you! We are so sad!
We have so many fond memories of riding horses together!
I am so sorry for your loss. Henry exuded so much warmth and genuine sweet character. I will always remember his kindness.
Henry, you meant so much to so many people. Never have I met someone with your courage and ability to find the upside of any situation. As I struggle finding the upside to this tragedy I know that thoughts of the time we spent together will always put a smile on my face. You are truly one of a kind and will remain a part of our family forever! -Paul Gensheimer and Family
What a sad day for us all. Henry was more than a plumber to our family. He was a kind gentleman who made each visit memorable with his encouraging words and heart of service. We will always remember you and are thankful to have known you.
What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. ~ Author Unknown
HENRY YOU WERE ONE OF THE MOST FRIENDLY, KIND AND POLITE CUSTOMERS I'VE EVER WORKED WITH. MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY. HENRY YOU WILL BE MISSED.
Dear Allen, Meghan, and Lucy,
We just heard of your tragic loss. Wish we had known in time to tell you personally how sorry we are to hear of Henry's passing. Shock robs us of better words, but know that we have you in our prayers.
Henry, that big smile, window rolled down, making the turn in your big white truck, cigarette in hand headed to/from Starbucks from a job - wise beyond your years - watching you from afar for many years and knowing why you were so beloved by so - a standup guy - a wonderful plumber - a fine young man - you leave us all much too soon - but with indelible good memories of you that time will not erasee - farewell - I wish that I could have bought you your next coffee like the latte you bought me the last time me met. With great sadness but joy in knowing that you were truly one of the good ones. Sadly but with a smile remebering yours. Rich Brandt
Henry: Our family so looked forward in spending Thanksgiving dinner with you this year.Our hearts are so broken and empty,not hearing your opinion about the topic of the day. We will meet again at our "Lord's Table" and the first sip of eternal life is on us.
Henry was known throughout our neighborhood as a stand up guy and always there for anyone who needed him. The kids adored him and it goes without being said, we will not soon fully recover from this loss. We always will appreciate your kindness, your genuineness, and your warm yet humble smile.
- Amy Summerville
Henry you were a great friend and awesome plumber. I owe you so much for all the help over the years. Words can't describe. Love you brother. You will be truly missed.
We are so sorry for your loss, and are thinking of Henry's family and friends during this very difficult time.
Henry always had a special place in our family's heart--he will continue to do so. Our prayers are with you.
Henry, there will never be anyone like you! Losing you has left me with a deep, deep sadness. I have so many happy memories of us all growing up together: fishing at Pfeiffer's pond, our trip to the Outer Banks, countless days hanging out after school, among a million other ones crowding my brain. As kids, and then later as adults I was always struck by your genuineness, generosity and your heart of gold. I hope wherever you are there are unlimited packs of Marlboro Reds, six packs of Coca-cola with mugs in the freezer and birthday cake (because you always insisted birthday cake trumped all other cakes. Period.) I love you Hen.
May the sorrow you feel in your heart lighten by the love that surrounds you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Allen, Chris and Lucy- I am so very sorry for your loss. Not only did I babysit Henry and Lucy but I remember first meeting Henry at horseback riding lessons. My heart goes out to all of you during this time and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
To Buzzy and Meghan and the Dufala family sorry for your loss, I did not know your son but you are all in my thoughts, please give yourMom Dorothy my regards. She was always like family to all of us, again sorry for your loss. Dan Ordons. San Diego
My best memories of Henry were his falling off a horse on purpose for a scene in a video project at school, and his convincing the entire 9th grade to go outside for an impromptu pep rally in the middle of classes. He was so full of innocent mischief.
Our thoughts & prayers go out to you & your family. Henry will be greatly missed. Jennine & Robert Pallone
My prayers are with Henrys family. Such an incredible loss.
Meghan and Buzzy, We would like to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. May your loving memories help get you through this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
My dear Megan -- I am so sorry for your loss. The thought of your pain grips my soul. Lucy - sweet - sister I am sorry. I am sending love to you both. I am not in town so I can't come tonight to offer my personal condolences. Much love, Clare
Meghan, Allen, Lucy, and family, We want to extend our condolences on the passing of Henry. He was a good friend and a joy to watch growing up through the years. What a handsome young man he became. We will truly miss him. All our love to all of you during this difficult time. The Hamilton's Sissy (Roppa), Bill, and Courtney Dadejko.
...beloved son, trusted friend, a good and honorable man. We will miss you each minute of every passing day. loves you - Mama

We were blessed to have Henry as our sweet neighbor and kind friend for the past three years. The fact that he was a fantastic plumber was just icing on the cake. We love and miss him very much.
- Mara, Camille and Sophie
I never had as much fun being a secretary as I did when I worked for Henry. I will never forget all long talks, the fun we had doing paperwork, the dairy Queen and the trip to the Outer Banks. My heart goes out to the whole family.
Meghan I can not imagine the loss that you must be feeling.
I know how proud Henry made you feel. Remember the good times. May you find the strength to endure. Find comfort the best way you can. Rob and Diane McConaghy Bellingham, Wa
Lucy, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Henry showed up to my first grade birthday party in a bow tie carrying a bouquet of flowers. Ever the gentleman. My prayers are with his loved ones.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the family. Heaven now has one more angel.
So sad to hear the news of Henry's passing! I am praying for strength and courage for you all to get through this tragic loss. Peace be with you all.
Sending prayers to you and your family at this most difficult time...
We loved you dearly and will never recover your loss you will be missed each and every day. Love Dad
Buzz, So sorry to hear of your loss. I never knew your son but my thoughts and prayers are with him--Bill
Henry was a wonderful kind and gentle man. He was such a good friend. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Henry- My dear,dear friend.The kindest, most gentle, most polite man I have ever known. Your sense of humor, that smile; I miss you soo much. Tears fall as I write. I feel guilty because I'm not sure if I'm crying because I lost you, or because you lost life. Either way, I'm so glad I knew you, and I will miss you terribly. Nick
I am so terribly sorry for your loss, Allen and Chris. I knew Henry as a teenager and thought he was a very kind soul.
Alan can't even begin to say what I feel. I am so glad I got to know him even though it was brief. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
Henry was a good plumber, a better friend, and the BEST neighbor. When I moved into the neighborhood, the there was a minor rock throwing incident with a local youth, Henry chased the kid down and marched him back to me to apologize! That told me a lot about Henry's character, which was of the finest. Henry would always greet you with a giant grin, a handshake and a "how ya doing pal?'. I'll miss that.
Thinking of you all and hoping that fond memories of Henry bring you comfort. Sending prayers and much love.
My sincerest sympathies to you, Buzzy, and your entire family. I was so sad to hear of your loss. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Henry, I wished I'd told you how proud of you,I've been though out the years, how much I love you. now I'm with out you I feeling I don't relish, I know you'll watch out for me from heaven, now you and AC macdonald can be together
my eterna love Henry, Uncle ,Andy Macd.
Buzz & Meghan & the entire Dufala family.
My heart is aching for all of you today. There are no words to ease your pain. Hopefully onee day when you think of Henry it will be with laughter & not tears. Keeping you all in prayer. Susan Tondreau Gizzi
My deepest sympathy to the family. Brad, Sewickley Heights Gun Club.
I had the privelage of giving Henry his Master Plumber's license a couple years ago at the Allegheny County Health Department. He was a kind and gentle soul and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to his family and friends.
My deepest sympathies, and sincerest prayers to you and your family Allen. May the Lord give you all that you need at this difficult time.
My deepest condolences to the family in this difficult time. I haven't seen Henry in years, but he still remains at the top of my brother's favorite friend list from the QV days.
My favorite memory of sweet Henry... and I have never laughed so hard....the day he decided he hated his tennis shoes and threw them in the fire place. It snowed that night and he realized he had no shoes to wear to shovel the drivewaywe laughed for hours!!! These are the things to celebrate in remembering the life of Henry Dufala. You will be greatly missed my friend. My love to Lucy and her family.
Henry, we are thankful to have had you as our neighbor and true friend. We will treasure the times you spent with our family through laughter and tears. May you rest in His peace. We will love you forever. Chad, Courtney, Rocco and Amelia Luchette
