"Happy 96th birthday, Grandma! I wish we could have had you with us this past July in Maine when Tim and I got married, but I'm so thankful that he got to meet you back in 2012. I miss you and think of you so often, Grandma. Love you and happy birthday!"
"Happy 95th birthday, Grandma. Love and miss you."
""Straighten up and fly right"... That about says it all. A lot of us heard that when we were young. My condolences to the family. Rest in peace Mrs. Henry. You will be missed by many."
"You are so missed, Dear Amy. Your hard work, dedication and stamina, your wonderful wit and wisdom, your indomitable spirit, and most especially your love and friendship will always be remembered. Singing in the church choir will never quite be the same without you. I am so blessed to have known you, and we all will continue to be inspired by the example you set and the life that you led."
"Hi Evan, and all the Henrys.
Your mother was a remarkable person. Her strength and wisdom were an inspiration. Our very best wishes to everyone. -Mike, Gail and Caroline Griswold, Cary NC."
"To all the Henry family,
What a great woman you had as mother, grandmother, great grand mother, or friend. She touched so many at her church: we all loved her dearly.
May God hold you hands while you think of her, letting you know she is well. Love, Annette"
"Thank you Mrs. Henry for being the sweet, wonderful teacher you were. Always kind and helpful in every way and always a help whether it was school or church or whatever you were involved in. You will be greatly missed by many!"
"A wonderful teacher who left great memories for me and my children. Thank you Amy."
"I was so blessed to have had Mrs. Henry as a teacher some 35 years ago... when I met her again with my daughter in elementary school, I was so touched to learn from her that she had kept a gift I had made and given to her as a child, and that she hung it on her Christmas Tree each year. Goodbye, with love and gratitude."
"A message from Galen, age 11.
"Mrs. Henry, If you were right here sitting next to me, I would hug you & tell you how happy I am that I have known you my whole life! You have always been an amazing person who I think of as one of the most kind adopted grandmothers I've ever had. I will miss you so so much. I hope you will visit me in any way you can. Love, Galen"
"Dear Mrs. Henry,
Thank you for your smile & love & kindness you always shared with me & my family. I am grateful for your gifts of gentleness, strength, beauty, courage, wisdom, laughter & grace. You are one of the world's most special angels, & always have been. I will miss seeing you. I will keep your love in my heart & share it with others. <3"
