    Dear Smith Family, I will always have the most fond memories of Uncle Henry. I last saw him at my father’s funeral four years ago this month. I and my sisters and brothers were very moved by Uncle Henry’s most gracious words about our Dad, Willie. I am sorry to hear that Uncle Ray is hospitalized. I, my wife Lynda and our sons Ross and Ryan are praying for all of you. I so regret being unable to attend the family reunion you held in Nashville, but I was recovering from a nasty bout with colon cancer and was unable to travel.

    Growing up, I always admired Dad’s preaching brothers. Uncle Hnery was God’s devoted servant, and I know he was greated at heaven’s gate by his Savior and his God, both of whom no doubt said: “Well done, my faithful servant.”

    As far back as I can remember Bro. Henry has been in my life. I’ve never known a kinder or more consistent person that lived out what he believed. I’m so thankful that he and his sweet wife were part of my life. There is no doubt he prayed for my salvation and praise God I will meet him in heaven one day. My entire family loved him dearly and he will be missed greatly.
    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family and friends!
    Love,
    Debbie
