I always enjoyed hearing Henry play the piano and cherished the days he came in. He was such a genuine soul and kind-spirited. I'm grateful I got to meet him and chat with him through his journey. I'll always carry that sense of joy he created in my heart each time he played the piano. Thank you for being so good to him, Chryl. With love, Shelby

Henry was one of my favorite customers when I worked at the North Side Assolciated Bank drive up. He would always come through and we would talk about each others day and discuss the weather or weekend plans. Sorry for your loss and know he will always remain in your hearts.
