I never knew Henry but saw him around Hines Farm when I went out there. My mom & a friend of hers knew him and would go out to his place around the early 80's and visit with him. She has nothing but kind words for him, as I see is consistant from everyone else too. My dad also knew him. I always knew about Hines Farms growing up but never went out there. I take 295, either going out to Grand Rapids, Oak Openings Park or horse events out that way. One day I thought, I just gotta go check that place out. I called my dad and said I wanna go out there. He got on the phone with his friend, found out what was comin up and called me & said let's go, they got a show on your birthday. It was Dec 2nd, 2006. B.B. King's daughter, Shirley was there. What a great time we had. I didn't know it at the time but it would be the last fun place I would go with my dad as he passed a short time later. Since then I been out there numerous times with different people (high school classmates, a gal from the ladies motorcycle club I belong to, co -workers) and we all, always loved it. I am so glad that Henry kept Hines Farm going all these years and that they did a documentary with Henry on Hines Farms. His memory will live on in so many ways. Thank you Henry for providing a place where I even got to make great memories as well. It sure won't be the same driving past now, I would always look at the sign to see who was coming out next & when. I'd see those three big grills settin out front with the empty charcoal bags over the pipes. ~Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Griffin family. May God bring you strength and comfort. Henry will sure be missed.~ Take Care

HENRY AND I TRADED SERVICES, I WOULD FIX HIS COOLERS & HE WOULD DELIVER STONE FOR MY DRIVEWAY. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM AS A SOFT SPOKEN, BIG HEARTED, EASY GOING, GENTLE MAN. I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN HIM LONGER AND COULD HAVE DONE MORE.....
I'LL MISS OUR CHATS AND YOU.
TALK TO YOU LATER...

Never met Mr. Henry but I grew up in Toledo, I'm around Mr.Henry's age so I am familiar with Hines Farm and the Swanton area, I never went out there because it was alway's considered " country " in my world, I eventually moved out of the Toledo area to Houston, Texas...one week-end night I came upon a " hole in the wall " blues joint and decided to go in, it was a hot summer night and front door was wide open so you could hear the " blues " as you walked up on the place, I will always remember as I stepped into the place how all of the people welcomed me in " like I was family ", the people were genuine from the heart real people , no pretenses , and every blues song had story to it that everybody or at least someone in the place could relate to...so I know from that experience that " Mr. Henry " was a good man and if there is a " Blues Place " in Heaven, Mr Henry is there welcoming people in, may he rest in peace and may his family be well....Roger ( Houston, Texas )
