I was very sad to hear of Henry’s passing. My wife and I would like to send our deepest sympathies and condolences to you and your family. When I first became a member of the Knights of Pythias, Henry was one of the first to welcome me and walk me throught the degrees. He was a fine man, and will be truly missed by all who knew him. The world is better place for having him our lives. He will be truly missed.

Pauline, We send our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Henry was a true and dear friend to us and he will surely be missed by all who knew him. I know that he is in Heaven looking down on us and probably will laugh a lot when he sees us in our daily lives. Pauline, when ever you need us, we will always be there for you. God will replace our sorrows in time and with wonderful memories of Henry. God bless you and your family. We love you Pauline!
