When we lose a loved one, it hurts deep down in our soul. We are sorrowful, but we can also rejoice. Brother Hank is setting at the feet of Jesus. No more pain, no more sorrow, just happiness and joy

I extend my sympathy to the family of Henry. I met him a long time ago because I was a friend of his brother Gary. May he rest in peace.
