Julia and Rodriguez Family,

My sincere condolences on the passing of Henry. I worked with Henry and knew him well when I worked at Kelly AFB. I just saw his obituary and was saddened. My prayers are with you and his family. May God wrap His loving arms around each of you and grant you peace.

Henry and I go way back and I consider myself blessed to have been a good friend of Henry's. We worked closely together at both the 433 AES (what was then the 34 AES) and at KAFB. Henry was so fun to be around and I will forever remember those things he did (moon over Yakima, etc) that kept us all in stitches!! Henry will be truly missed.

Henry and I shared a few beers during a reserve unit TDY in Germany. We also worked several years together at the SA Air Logistics Center. He was a good friend and had a good heart.

May he be at peace. I knew Henry in the USAF Reserves. He was a fun loving person with a big heart. I was glad Henry was always there to help when needed and never complained.

My condolences to the Rodriguez family. I worked with Henry at Kelly AFB and recall the many fond memories. One I will always remember, Henry always had a smile on his face when he greeted you. A Holy Cross graduate, like myself, we became close friends and shared a comradeship as fellow alumni. Rest in peace my friend. My thoughts and prayers for you and the family.
