Condolence & Memory Journal

I grew up knowing Uncle Henry as "Uncle Hank", never knowing until much later that he didn'r like being called "Hank". He has always held my deepest love and respect and is, in part, why I chose to serve in the U.S. Army after college.My prayers are with your family and I hope you will accept my sincere sympathy, Love you Uncle Henry!
