Peggy and Family, So sorry for your loss. Thankfully you have so many happy family memories to reflect upon.  I’m sure my parents were standing in the line of people waiting to greet Henry on the other side as they always enjoyed times spent together.

Dear Dave and family,
You have our sympathy in the passing of your father. This is an impressive time. My father always spoke very highly of your mother. He knew her from when she was a nurse at our church nursing home on S. West End Ave.

Jeff, your Pop was a good man.  I knew him as a friend, a fellow letter-carrier, an employee, and a fellow Redeemer attendee.  I will always remember him as the guy who made up the labels for carrier letter cases before computers took the workload.  As a matter of fact, I have his self-made board (used to make the labels) and the ruler he used.  His printing was incredible.  I will also remember him as being an easy going guy. When I supervised the carriers at the DTS in Lancaster, he carried a walking route. I never had to worry about “Hen” getting his route finished on time.  He was like clock-work.  He will be missed and while your family and friends grieve, Heaven rejoices, as they have gained another Angel.  Peace my friend.
