I was fortunate to get to know and spend so much time with Henry at Little Sisters. He was always the first to greet you with a warm smile, or to cheer you up with a joke and his infectious laugh. He was a wonderful man whom I loved, and he will always have a special place in my heart.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. I have many fond memories of you both. I wish I could be there to give you a hug but I know Henry is singing with my Dad and Sam. He was a very good friend of my father's. God Bless you all at this time.

Anne and family, you have our deepest sympathies. As times passes, know that you will remember the joyous and wonderful times spend with Hank. I remember mostly the fun times with you, Anne, and Hank and the Glenn Andrew Singers, Sacred Heart Choir, progressive dinners and on and on and on. He always had a story that made you laugh.
