Debbie, so shocked and sad to hear of your fathers passing. I was just about to send a high school photo of your Mother and Father. I was going through my photos just 2 days ago and thought he might like them. I will try to send them to you. Take care. Henry will be missed, just like your Mother. We are living in Va. now and miss "everyone" so much. I guess you would call it "homesick". It's nice down here but, as they say " there's no place like "home". How true!
Sincerely Beverly
