To The Henderson Family, Thank you for introducing us to Phil because she was lovely. She was funny, articulate and generous. Her stories were legendary, her accent, unique. Love from the Eastwells
Dear Aunt Phil's family.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Hearing your words at her memorial, I realize how blessed you all are to have each other in life and in memories.
Frances Franks, Winfield
Dear Glenn, Susan, Sonny and Peter
I met your gracious mum/grandmother on several occasions. I know she was much loved and admired and will be missed. I see her legacy in the manner in which you all engage with and live your lives. Pat Lehane
We're very sorry for your loss, Glenn. Your mother was a wonderful person, which is reflected well in you. I will miss her. Best wishes to all of you is this difficult time. Phil & Sandy
Dear Henderson family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I have many happy memories from my younger days of my good friend Louise, and her wonderful parents, Phil and Jay. My husband Peter and I have had a number of good conversations with Phil over the past few years. Phil had a great sense of humour and was easy to talk to. Kathie Holloway (nee McKay)
Dear Glenn, Susan, Peter and Sonny,
We never knew your Mom, but we know she was extra special. She must have done all the right things to have such a loving family and friends. Our thoughts are with you. Errol & Alice, Kamloops, BC
RIP Aunt Philomene. I feel so fortunate to have seen you a few weeks ago during your last days here with us, and to listen to some of your stories about your life. I am so blessed to have made it to the service. I don't think I've ever cried so much in my life. I know you don't want us to be upset, but we miss you. I pray that God has a place for you in Heaven, and I'm sure that he does. One day we will meet again. I love you ?
As a kid I remember my sister Wendy saying, "When I'm older, I'll have a home just like Aunt Phil's" and I knew exactly what she meant; welcoming, warm and fun. Thanks Aunt Phil for showing us how it's done.
I remember meeting aunt phil many years ago but i still remember what a really nice person she was and she had us over for dinner and it was one of the best meals i ever had .I glad i had the chance to met her .
Dear Chris Sorry I could not be there for you at this. When I have your home address I would like to send you a letter.
Her light warmed the hearts of all of us; we're grateful to have shared so many meals around her table. We'll miss her dearly, our beloved Phil.
I wish I could be there to say my goodbye, but it was not mint to be so I say it from here.
Dear Henderson Cousins:
I sent a message but it looks like it didn't go through. I will try again. Your Mom was so good at keeping in touch with our family. I will never forget my last conversation with her. She was so gracious at having had received my letter accompanied by the pictures I sent. More than once she said "Thank you from the bottom of my heart." Your Mom had a sense of humor that most would only hope to have. As sick as she was, she was able to add humor to our conversation. She showed the picture of Mom (Aunt Rose) to the nurses telling them that this lady was her Aunt. It created a bit of a stir since they could not believe your Mom at her age would still have an Aunt!! Anyway, I want to tell you your Mom was special and I will always have very fond memories of her. She would tell me little stories she remembered as a young girl in Carlton. A short while ago, she made a special call to me wondering what Uncle Philippe's cat name was. When I told her it was probably "Cheetah", she was so excited to hear that. She did not have to wonder about it anymore. I will miss her!!

Dear Glenn,Sue, Sonny & Peter
We are so sorry for your loss.
Your mum/grandmother was a special person and we will never forget her many kindnesses to us. Always a thank you and a Christmas card every year without fail. She was a truly lovely person and will be missed.
Phil & Marlie
I hope to grow old with such grace and dignity as Phil. I hope I am climbing the steps to my garden as agilely as Phil did a few years ago to see the tomatoes. She was 92 years old at that time. Phil knew who she was and had a sense of self about her that I greatly admire. I saw vague mannerisims that are reflected in her son Glenn. That little uniqueness in her speech and kindness of thought and deed that she passed on from her own character and way of living her life. I will miss not having one more visit with her.
Dear Henderson Families:
My deepest condolence on the passing of your dear mother/grandmother. Her infectious laughter will never be forgotten and will be much missed. Her kindness is reflected in the beautiful picture that you have selected for this memory book. It was an honour to have known her. Regards, Peter (Hopkins).
I will miss you and love you, Aunt. Say hi to everyone for me:)
