Not sure what to say?

Henry was the perfect Gentleman but like all journalists with an eye on the story and always with a great tale to tell. He was a committed member of the upstanding traits of the job - accurate, precise and cared about clarity. He will be missed by members of the Chartered Institute of Journalists (CIoJ) and especially by the CIoJ's Orphan Fund of which I am Chair. RIP Henry.

My name is Jenny Geraghty nee Hunt. My father Hugh Hunt worked with Henry on the Liverpool Daily Post. He and My mother were great friends with Henry and Elizabeth. This friendship continued in later life in Surrey and afterwards when Hugh now married to Jean Ware (also a journalist on the Liverpool Daily Post). I remember visiting the family home in Liverpool and Guildford. I would just like to send my condolences to your family.
