So sorry for your loss, Mrs. Manning and family. Henry was a good, good man with a kind heart. I remember around one Christmas I had lost my job. There wasn't going to be any Santa Claus that year, but Henry made it happen. I will never forget that kindness. RIP, Henry.

Some of the best times was with Henry and Papa D in the Christ Baptist Kitchen!!! Two great men.. Knowing them both was the highlight of my life. Henry was one of the best! So sorry for your loss Barbara, he truly was a man of GOD, a friend, a mentor, a helper so many awesome things I can remember about ole Henry. He lived doing GOD's work.

May God comfort the hearts of the entire Manning family during your time of grief. Mr. Manning was a business partner of my father's and I had only a few opportunities to run into him at the office. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. May God give your family strength to continue on the rest of your journey without your loved one.

Sincerest condolences to the Manning Family. Lots of great memories were made over time as he and a couple buddies (Nathaniel and W.C.) morphed into the "coffee club men" at Art's Quality Bakery, greeting customers, telling stories, and looking out for us all. May God grant him eternal peace.

My prayers and condolences to the entire family Brother Henry was so kind and friendly. I can remember how he greeted his church family on Sunday mornings; always with a great big hug and the biggest smile. His assignment here on earth is done and God has wrapped His arms around Brother Henry and says well done!

to Barb and the entire family
While saddened to here of Henry's passing we know that YOUR loss is heavens' gain. As I thought about it, I realized we have known this family for over 60 years. Please continue to lean on Christ knowing that he can give you the strength you need at this difficult time of transition and for that time to come when there is no one around for you to talk to and lean on But Him. Our prayers are with you.

There are simply no words. Absolutely none. Such a wonderful person, such a kind and giving person. If you knew Henry L. Manning Jr. you knew the best. He was truly a servant of God's people. He had a strong and focused belief in working for the kingdom. Whether vacuuming the sanctuary or giving communion, he did it to the best of his ability. I will never forget you Deacon Yummie. Rest well Sir you deserve it! I imagine Papa Danzy has already found you and showing you around the place. Say Hi to my Mom for me! Family you certainly have all of my sympathy Barbara (Babette - my nickname) bless you. Praying for you all.

Saddened to hear about Deacon Manning, fun times we had in the kitchen at Christ Baptist. Memories that I will never forget, he would tell me, awwww gal get on now! And when it's gone it's gone. Good memories, praying for Mrs Manning and the entire family that God gives you comfort and peace. R.I.P. Deacon Manning
