Still missing Henry. He started me on a career path at E H Thompson that has lasted 40 years now. Henry changed my life for the better in 1975, training me in sales, listening to his stories and many jokes, still missing him as I said.

Happy Birthday Henry ! I am confident you are the "LIFE" of the party every day in Heaven! Besides my Father (your friend Billy Parker)you are the most influential man in my life. You hired me at EHT in '74 launching my lifelong sales career. I learned from the best. You were my mentor. I miss you Henry, the twinkle in your eyes, the wrinkle of your brow and your big broad smile always.

Henry hired me in 1976 to work in his new EHT Baycenter warehouse. He then gave me a chance as a salesman because he had Faith in me. He encouraged & nurtured me & enriched my life He gave me confidence to build a career in sales. I shall ever remain most humbly indebted to him for this. He was indeed one of a kind. Thank you for sharing tribute to him with all of us who loved him so much.

We just found out last night about Mr Motes passing. The family is in our prayers. Mrs. Motes is such a sweet lady. We never met Mr Motes but no doubt he was a blessing to his family and friends and this world is a better place because of him. God bless you all. Your neighbors #602

We pray God's presence will sustain you as you keep Henry in your heart and memories.
