To my mom, and Henry’s Family; Henry was the best thing that has happened to my mom. He and I were alot alike so I was always laughing when I was with him. He lifted me up when my real father fell short, and was a great father figure for my children before I met my husband. He had a great passion for life and inspired me to be a better person. I owe him a great deal for taking care of my mom as he did so well.
Henry……..I love you, and I promise to take care of your girl.
Mom……….I am so sorry for this, I wish I could take all the pain away, I love you.
Henrys friends and family…….
