Henry was a very nice person and we truly enjoyed camping and fishing with him. We looked forward to our annual trip to Calling Lake and feel it is not the same without you guys there. We will miss him immensely. Memories of our friendship will always bring smiles to our faces and help to lighten the grief we feel in Henry’s untimely passing. May God bless all of you. Doris, our deepest, deepest condolences to you. When we come to visit, Doris, we will have to have a “di boza” and an ice cream on Henry!
