I am making this memorial for my brother Henry. As we all know the good Lord took him early in life. When I remember Henry I think of all the times growing up when we would get into trouble. It's wasn't easy being the children of a Minister. You know how us preacher's kids are. Well Henry was no different. He was what I would call the "Risk Taker". I guess every family has one and Henry was ours. If it could go fast and make a lot of noise you could count on Henry wanting to do it.
I can remember Henry one summer at our cabin where he climbed a tree off of some cliffs and jumped into the river from it. It had to be 60 feet and he hit the water so hard it ripped his shorts off. He didn't think it was any big deal but man you would never catch me up there.
We all miss you very much and words can't explain how hard it is at times. There was so much more to his life than many people will ever know. Henry had his deamons but he was winning. He would give his shirt of his back giving something when he had nothing.

We love you bro....

Henry, in the last 365 days, not a day has gone by that i have not thought of you many,many times.Some of those days I have cryed, looked at your picture many time and still miss you. There are days I find, when something is broken, saying, well Hrnry will fix it only to remember you are not here to fix it. I want you here but I know in my heart you are in a far better place.All my love.

I was thinking about what you wrote dad. Henry certainly did seem to be able to fix anything. I have to laugh for as much as he worked on cars I think he hated it. I have one fond memory when Henry was helping me fix my car and he smacked his hand while turning the wrench. He took out all his anger on my fender it was pretty funny now that I think of it.

Dearest Henry,You fought a great battle and you won.After gaining painful insight and remorse for the weakness and problems your disease perpetrated,you endured humiliatons,that could have threatened you , demeaned you and caused your spirit and resolve to break.Instead,the solid,loving,singlehearted man ,that his loved ones always knew was there, emerged.You chose God and your children above all other things and began to recover.PART ONE
